Chaplain Services

The Logan County Sheriff's Office Chaplain program is supervised by the Senior Chaplain and is responsible for conducting general worship services and providing religious counseling to inmates and staff. Other areas of involvement may include death notifications, suicide intervention, bereavement counseling, community liaison, and ceremonial duties.  Our Senior Chaplain is Pastor Kellie Kitson and she works closely with our Jail Administrator in supervising the other volunteer chaplains and in providing programs for the inmates.

We are always looking for volunteer chaplains to assist in worship services and programs such as Celebrate Recovery and if you would like to be part of the program, please call Lt. Keysha Phelps at 479-963-3271, ext. 1.
