LCC K-9 Police Ministry®
The LCC K-9 Police Ministry handlers are law enforcement officers (current and former) who understand the unique challenges facing the law enforcement community. They bring Mercy, Compassion, Presence, and Proclamation of Jesus Christ to those who protect and serve, as well as their families.
Crisis Response – Serving law enforcement and family members in their time of need, by providing comfort following injuries, deaths, or major incidents.
Ongoing Support – K-9 visits (headquarters, substations, dispatch centers), assistance with department missions (Christmas shopping with children, summer camps, public events), comforting crime victims (prior to interviews, counseling, or courtroom testimony), and general support for department members and their families.
Our brothers and sisters in law enforcement can take comfort in the knowledge that the LCC K-9 Police Ministry handlers can relate to them as peers. The LCC K-9 Police Ministry only serves upon request. Services are provided without cost to those served.
For more information on the LCC K-9 Police Ministry, please contact Patrick Quinn, LCC K-9 Police Ministry Coordinator, at 866-455-6466 or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
