Mission & Inspiration
Our mission is to provide a ministry of presence, support, and guidance to the law enforcement personnel of the Southaven Police Department, as well as the unfortunate victims of crime.
No one is confronted with more situations that demoralize and create emotional, mental, and spiritual burdens than today's law enforcement officer. These burdens also affect the officer's family and other members of our department. The Chaplaincy Program is dedicated to serving the law enforcement personnel of the Southaven Police Department, their families, and the unfortunate victims of crime.
Chaplaincy Core Values
- (1) Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. (2) Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation. (3) For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same: (4) For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil. (5) Wherefore ye must needs be subject, not only for wrath, but also for conscience sake.
