Law Enforcement chaplain leaves

December 3, 2003

Albany -- A man who has provided spiritual support for Dougherty County law officers and crime victims for ten years is leaving. Stan Halstead has resigned as the lead chaplain for all three of Dougherty County's law enforcement units.

He's moving to Charleston, South Carolina where his wife has taken a new job.

He says he will miss his many friends in law enforcement. "They are a very special breed of people. Very unsung in their work they do. They don't get a whole lot of accolade. They certainly need the support, and chaplains can provide that. "

Halstead says he has already contacted Police agencies in Charleston about his work as a chaplain and may volunteer there.
