Madison County Detention Facility Chaplain's Corps,. program is
not like other jail chaplaincy programs as these chaplains volunteer
to work with the staff, not the inmates. There are local churches
and ministries that work with the inmates. The facility houses
up to 1220 inmates with a staff of 215. The officers work the
floors and tiers of the jail on 12 hour tours of duty. Their interaction
with inmates working 12 hours shifts is mentally demanding, traumatic
and often causes the staff to experience a lot of stress showing
PTSD type symptoms. As a counter balance to this serious situation,
the leadership of the jail realized a need to have Chaplains available
with corrections training to work with the their officers and
families when needed. There are 10 chaplains at this time, more
will be added as needed. Chaplain Reggie Whiddon the third from
the left front row is the lead chaplain who worked with Chaplain
Gibson setting this program up. Chaplain Whiddon is a wonderful
man that has a beautiful heart for helping others. All these chaplains
are members endorsed by Chaplain Fellowship Ministries.
Program has been in affect for two years now, this Vido is Evidence
of it's Success
These chaplains are required to complete in house training being
assigned to work side by side with jail oficers, this helps build
trust and sound relationships with the officers and their families.
They are also on call twenty four hours a day when needed. Chaplains
must have a sound foundation in biblical teaching. They are also
trained in CISM, CISD and crisis intervention. Chaplain Fellowship
and all our members are very happy and blessed to have these dedicated
chaplains on our team.
