This page describes services we provide to the community and how to request them. We operate under the Lawrence County Sheriff's Office, so in many cases if you request assistance from the Sheriff's Office (for help with event security, for instance), have a Memorandum of Understanding with the Sheriff's Office or a Mutual Aid Agreement, you will receive our services automatically through your existing agreements. In some cases, you may wish to request our services directly. We also provide some services or benefits to members of the Sheriff's Office or their families.
At our January meeting, the Sheriff commissioned the Sheriff's Auxiliary's first Chaplain: Lt. Junior Grade Brian Moomey has been a Branson Police Officer, former Pastor of Impact Christian Center in Aurora, a prison guard, and a hospice Chaplain. As LCS Auxiliary's Unit Chaplain, Lt. Moomey will help us to recruit and train additional Chaplains and Chaplains' assistants.
The Unit Chaplain reports to the Chief of Staff. The Chaplain(s) are responsible for the spiritual well-being of the Auxiliary volunteers, the members of the Sheriff's Office as a whole, and their families. The Unit Chaplain supervises and trains Chaplains and Chaplain Assistants. The LCSA Unit Chaplain and subordinates may act on behalf of the public at large and minister to victims or victims families (or those accused), but primary responsibility is to the unit and to the Sheriff's Office.
