Brad Schimel Brings Chaplain Program To Wisconsin

(Madison) The state’s attorney general has spearheaded a program that will provide more support to Wisconsin’s chaplains who aid law enforcement officers. Brad Schimel says after attending a recent Law Enforcement Chaplains Certification Program he felt that Wisconsin needed its own training course for police chaplains. Last month, the attorney general’s office conducted trainings in Merrill and Pewaukee. The 12-course certification process is taught in four segments and is offered free of charge. Schimel says the program is making a difference in communities, statewide and that he is proud of the work it has already accomplished. He says he looks forward to continuing to make sure officers are physically, mentally, and emotionally healthy.
