Law Enforcement Training Equips Officers to Care for Others in Uniform

The Billy Graham Rapid Response Team (RRT) hosted a Law Enforcement Chaplain Training from January 26-31 at the Ohio Peace Officer Training Academy in London, Ohio—just 25 miles southwest of Columbus, the state's capital.
The 6-day course equipped retired and active duty law enforcement officers or chaplains to offer emotional and spiritual care to fellow men and women in uniform.
While the RRT was originally created to offer hope to those during natural and man-made disasters, the ministry eventually developed a law enforcement program after taking note of the growing challenges officers face today. David Rutledge, RRT's law enforcement manager and former police detective, led last week's class of 32 attendees. >> Learn more about the RRT's law enforcement ministry.
This training provides a safe atmosphere where those in uniform can learn how to reach other officers and their families with the love of Jesus Christ.
"God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble." —Psalm 46:1
Please pray that the attendees will be effective ministers of the Gospel while in uniform, and ask God to protect all law enforcement officers.
