"THE CHAPLAIN'S CORNER" - Police Chaplain Sam Faraone

Having served the El Paso Police Department as volunteer chaplain since 1992, I have profound respect for each of you and the service you provide.  I treasure the opportunity to know many of you personally having responded to incidents you were working, having provided support to you and your family when you experienced personal crises, being present when tragedy visits the department and visiting with you at EPMPOA meetings.  Although I work full time as a chaplain in the private sector, my goal is to be available to provide support and encouragement to the best of my ability for the members of this department.  Please know that my intention is never to proselytize or force religion upon you, but support you in the stressful work in which you are involved and stressful incidents you encounter on a daily basis, to be a listener when you need to talk and to be a friend in whom you may confide.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns with which I can be of assistance.
