BOWLING GREEN, Ky, (WBKO) - The Warren County Sheriff's Office announced the founding of a Chaplaincy Program.

The purpose of the program is to offer comfort and quality care to the residents of Warren County during critical incidents, death notifications and other situations of distress.

Sheriff Brett Hightower says they will have a different group of ministers from various religions throughout Warren County to help notify families of the death of a loved one and to follow up afterward.

"We get a lot of different calls, we've had some fatality accidents, and for our deputies to be out working the actual scene and then to have to go and make notifications to a family is somewhat very difficult for everyone involved," said Hightower.

Sheriff Hightower says they are taking recommendations from the community of chaplains who could help.

Their plan is to begin the program in early June.
