Police Chaplains

The Rosemount Police Department has an active group of volunteer Chaplains. Coming from different denominational backgrounds, our Chaplains are ready to assist the Department in any way they can. They are often called upon to be present at the scene of a death, where they can spend time with the survivors and help them through the first, very difficult moments of beginning to grieve. In addition to this, Chaplains make ourselves available to the Department to offer words of encouragement and support. We have a fantastic team of Officers in Rosemount and Chaplains want to help them be at their very best.

The work as Chaplains is really about having a ministry of presence. They want to be there, wherever "there" is, at the right time to offer themselves in service to our community.

If you have questions about what they do or you would like more details about how to become a volunteer Chaplain, you can contact Lead Chaplain Bruce Bentley by email.

Police Chaplain Bruce

Lead Chaplain Bruce Bentley

Hi there! My name is Bruce Bentley and I'm the Lead Pastor at City on a Hill Church right here in Rosemount. My wife, four children, and I have lived in Rosemount since we moved from Iowa in 2002. I have served as a Pastor at four different Churches in over 30 years of ministry. I am ordained in the Evangelical Free Church of America.

I began serving the Rosemount Police Department in 2010. I have served as a volunteer alongside our Officers in a wide variety of situations over the years. During this time, I received training through the Minnesota Emergency Services Chaplain Association and the International Conference of Police Chaplains. I consider it a high privilege to serve our Officers when called upon. We have an outstanding Department!
