ABERDEEN, S.D. (AP) - The police department in Aberdeen is trying to expand its chaplain program.

Police Capt. Eric Duven tells KSDN-AM (https://bit.ly/1VOpazf ) that chaplains provide services to community members, emergency responders and law enforcement officers in times of crisis.

Police chaplains are fully ordained ministers who receive training in law enforcement chaplaincy and provide advice, comfort, counsel and referrals to people who may request support during a crisis.

The station reports that Aberdeen Police Chief David McNeil, Duven, other law enforcement officers and faith leaders recently attended training in Aberdeen.
