Hertfordshire Constabulary is looking to recruit two new volunteer chaplains to join its ranks and help support the force.

There are already numerous chaplains representing different faiths working in the county, and the force is hoping to fill vacancies in Welwyn Garden City.

The forces lead chaplain, Louis Spring, said: “Being a chaplain is a very privileged position and it is an honour to work among such fine people.

“I became a chaplain as I wanted to support and help the officers and staff who seek to keep us all safe.

“As well as being a trusted friend on hand to talk to or just listen, part of the role of being a chaplain is also ceremonial duties, including attending multi-faith events, award ceremonies and meeting new recruits, as well as providing support at memorial and funeral services.”

The police are looking for people who are professional, sensitive to the needs of others, and capable of providing impartial and confidential support.

Those interested in becoming a police chaplain should have experience in ministry, leadership and mentoring roles.

For more information about the role, contact Penny Brown on 01707 354 427 or email penny.brown@herts.pnn.police.uk
