The newest member of a Cincinnati area police force specializes in a different kind of law, God’s law. Pastor James Love doesn’t carry a gun or wear a badge. As the new Chaplain of the force, he will offer a safe place and a listening ear for the officers he serves beside. Love says his job is to care for his officers. After seeing the stresses law enforcement officers face, he felt it was a need that needed attention. Love began his position by riding along on patrols and building relationships with the officers because n he knows it will take some time to build up the trust he needs to be effective. Love said, “What I hope to be is a cheerleader and an advocate. I want to personally encourage the officers and help them keep their heads on straight.”— Jim L. Wilson and Jim Sandell
