Members of the NDHP Chaplain Program provide a trusted individual to NDHP personnel and their families as well as support for individuals upon notification of a family member being involved in a crash.

Chaplains are located throughout the state. Local chaplains are responsible to regional commanders and the Senior Chaplain, currently Pastor Les Wolfgram, Bismarck.

NDHP chaplains are available at the request of members of the department to minister to them or their families in times of illness, injury, grief, or anxiety. Chaplains are also available to assist with message deliveries, such as death notifications, and when called upon in emergency crisis situations.
