The Path of Life and Joy In these uncertain economic times the men and women of law enforcement are faced with very difficult challenges. Many have faced the overwhelming reality of job loses, early retirement (some times welcome and some times not), changes in duty assignments and an increase in work load. We the chaplains of your law enforcement family desire to help you meet these challenges. As with any family in crisis we come together to meet the needs of our family. The above listed chaplains are here to serve you and your families. We believe through help both physically and spiritually our law enforcement family can remain healthy. Yes, this will take work on everybody’s part. We are ready to roll up our sleeves and go to work. We attempt to keep office hours Monday thru Thursday. At anytime there is a chaplain on call. On call chaplains can be reached through Radio Dispatch. Chaplain Quaschnick (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Chaplain Hill (email@example.com) have email access through the system. Please do not hesitate to email prayer requests to us. We the chaplains of the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office are praying for you.
