Police Shomreem Ministries is a ministry of care that works with federal, state emergency management agencies and local public safety agencies. We work with these agencies to liaison between local ministers and the agency in need of chaplaincy services. Police Shomreem Ministries partnerships with local ministers who are willing to volunteer their services as on-call chaplains to local police departments, disaster relief and public safety agencies who are in need chaplaincy services. One of our specialties is to minister in chaplaincy to the public safety first responders, law enforcement support personnel, emergency services agents, disaster services agencies and the citizens of those communities. Police Shomreem Ministries works with ministers and mental health professionals who specialize in serving people who are in need of chaplaincy services. Police Shomreem Ministries also serves with several disaster relief agencies needing disaster relief, emotional and spiritual care with chaplaincy services. Our chaplains are experienced, trained, licensed and denominationally endorsed public safety and disaster relief chaplains.
We are on-call for any law enforcement agency or community that is in need of chaplaincy services. We have served several police departments in Lake, McHenry and Cook counties since we started this 501(c)3 ministry. We have also served in call-outs in central Illinois and Wisconsin. We have covered for public safety chaplains who were either not available to respond to situations or while they were out of town. We have served under the Department of Homeland Security numerous times. We have served with and under the incident command of the Federal Emergency Management Agency FEMA, the Illinois Emergency Management Agency (IEMA) and the Wisconsin Emergency Management Agency (WEMA). We have served under disaster services agencies affiliated with the National Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (National VOAD).
