The Daytona Beach Police Department partners with local clergy members to interact with citizens on a more spiritual, social and emotional level. The goal of the Chaplain Program is to work with law enforcement during times of crisis or incidents to provide a more comprehensive response to those in need. They are available 24 hours a day. 

The Police Chaplain serves as a liaison between DBPD and the faith-based community in Daytona Beach.
