The best podcasts for Police Officers

Who am I?

I’m a police chaplain in Kansas City; I ride with the officers, spend time in the station, and get deployed to homicides, suicides, and accidents. I do counseling with them and try my best to encourage them. I see the difficult and traumatic experiences my officers face And how little support they receive. After 25 years of helping first responders, I’m still eager to give encouragement and guidance in regard to their careers, families, and health.

My Show

What is my podcast about and/or how does it relate to the playlist topic you chose?

I don’t expect a brand new 21 year old police officer to talk to the chaplain, in fact some grumpy and surly 45 year old officers won’t talk to the chaplain either. But they might listen to the chaplain talk to other cops from the LAPD to Scotland Yard. So I made the Hey Chaplain podcast.

What is my podcast playlist about?

Finding encouragement, wisdom, and support in the law enforcement life. This list is comprised of a sampling of shows I actually listen to.

The podcasts I picked and why

1. Hey Chaplain: The Police Wellness Podcast

Why this podcast?

Listen to cops (and other experts in the larger first responder world) who want to share their wisdom so that you don’t have to learn the hard way.

The show looks at both the humorous and traumatic sides of police life, sharing wisdom to create healthy cops both at work and at home. New podcast episodes about police life and chaplaincy are available on first, third, and fifth Mondays of each month. Look for occasional special bonus episodes!
