Mayor Porter Welcomes Reverend Chauncey Brown as Police Chaplain

During a Special Presentation in the March 2015 Council Meeting, Mayor Jeff Porter took the opportunity to welcome and recognize Reverend Chauncey Brown, the new Police Chaplain.

Mayor Porter spoke fondly of Reverend Brown. “Before taking over as Chaplain, Chauncey was already a great addition for Homestead,” Porter explained to the Council, “I always see Chauncey supporting all our City events and in a short period of time, he has become an important part of our community. For him to be the spiritual leader of the Department is invaluable.”

Police Chaplains serve in a wide variety of ways. They may be called upon to assist in death notifications, assist and support victims in times of crisis, respond to suicide incidents, and serve as part of a crisis response team. They visit sick or injured personnel, are a resource for counseling for members of the agency and their families, and serve as a liaison with other clergy in the community. They are called upon to deliver the invocation or benediction at public ceremonies as representatives of the Police Department. They also are on hand to serve inside the police department.

Reverend Brown expressed his deep gratitude, saying how excited he is to serve the City of Homestead by bridging the gap between the community and the Police Department. “One of the things I’m most excited about” said the Reverend, “is an opportunity to have a city where the Chief and the entire Department are working together with the City, to make Homestead a better place for all of our citizens.”
