HCSO 2023 Annual Report

CHAPLAIN SERVICES Fostering Support, Faith, and Community Well-being

Henry County Sheriff's Office Chaplain Services Unit, under the leadership of Director TaMarlon T. Carter , continues its vital mission of providing guidance, consultation, and emotional support to HCSO employees and inmates. Embracing a diverse range of beliefs and practices, the unit ensures that all individuals receive the support they need regardless of faith or denomination. In 2023, Chaplain Services coordinated "Grits and Grace," held as part of National Faith in Blue Weekend, an initiative aimed at fostering collaboration and understanding between law enforcement professionals and the faith-based communities they serve. The panel discussion brought together influential community figures to discuss contemporary challenges through the lenses of education, religion, law enforcement, and civil/human rights.

Throughout 2023, the Chaplain Services Unit provided comprehensive employee care services, including family support, prayer, and guidance during difficult times such as the incident involving wounded deputy, Corporal Daniel Podsiadly. Chaplain services provides inmates with structured religious services and activities while detained. The Chaplaincy Services Unit conducted 103 religious services in 2023, fostering spiritual growth and support within the HCSO community. As we move forward, we remain dedicated to serving the needs of our employees and inmates with compassion and respect.
