The St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department's Head Chaplain is reaching out to officers and discussing the effects the protests are having on others in the community.
"We talk in passing, as they do their jobs, now. They will probably come when it's over with to sit down to talk," said Rev. R. M. Fraction.
Rev. R. M Fraction is Head Chaplain for the St. Louis Metro Police Department.
"You got numerous officers who want to talk about this thing. I try to stay out of numbers. I do not want to put the number out there," said Rev. Fraction.
He reveals officers are looking for peace and solitude.
"They need to be spiritually sound and focused," added Rev. Fraction.
"I have members of my church who are police officers. Members of my church who work at the sheriff's department," said Rev. Linden Bowie.
Rev. Bowie is Pastor at Zion Travelers Missionary Baptist Church.
His congregation, whether directly involved or not, is affected.
"They are seeking ways to involve themselves in making their voices heard as it relates to the trauma taking place within our region," added Rev. Bowie.
Rev. Bowie, like his predominately black church, is paying close attention.
"The God we serve is on the side of the oppressed. The God we serve is on the least of these. We are here to advocate for them as well," added Rev. Bowie.
