Public Safety Chaplaincy


Chaplain Chuck Boman is Chaplain to the Lake Oswego Police and Fire Departments.

From the Website: Public Safety Chaplaincy chaplains respond to wide variety of opportunities. They respond to community crises such as fatal accidents, suicides, homicides, SIDS deaths, search and rescue as well as hostage situations. Following such traumatic incidents, PSC chaplains conduct stress debriefings or defusing for all emergency responders, dispatchers, and commanders etc. who may have been involved. Free counseling is offered to public safety personnel both sworn and non-sworn and their families. This may include pre-marital, career-related, retirement and other topics as need may arise. PSC chaplains also perform weddings, funerals, baptisms as requested and make hospital and home visits as needed. From time t time they are involved in various training and teaching opportunities for officer, spouses, or new recruits in their departments as well as the police and fire academies and at times with the FBI. Ride alongs are an important opportunity for PSC chaplains to develop rapport and be available for informal counseling and support. PSC chaplains are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week and respond on a no-decline basis.
