The West Fargo Police Department created a Chaplain position in 1995. This is a volunteer position with great responsibility to both officers of the West Fargo Police Department as well as the community and citizens.
The police Chaplains work to meet the needs of both the officer and the members of the public as police work can become very emotional for multiple parties. The police Chaplains often ride with officers during shift and are always on call to support and assist both the officers and the victims of different traumatic events.
Police Officer's Prayer
Oh, Almighty God, who's great power and Eternal wisdom embraces the universe, Watch over our police officers And all law enforcement officers.
Protect them from harm in the performance Of their duty to stop crime, robberies, riot And violence. We pray, help them keep our Streets and homes safe by day and night.
We recommend them to your loving care Because their duty is dangerous. Grant them your unending strength and Courage in their daily assignments.
Dear God, protect these brave men and women, Grant them your almighty protection. Unite them safely with their families After duty has ended. Amen.
