LFPPD Chaplain Andy Koss

We are pleased to introduce our new Police Chaplain, Andy Koss. Andy started with the LFP Police Department in mid-July, and we are very excited to have him join us.

Chaplain Koss also works as a chaplain for Northshore Fire Department. He graduated from the Chaplain Academy in 2017 and has been working for Northshore Fire since. He was a Navy pilot for 20 years and, after retiring from the military, worked as a FedEx pilot. Chaplain Koss lives in the local area.

A police chaplain may be brought on scene to support first responders and their families during difficult times. Much like the police service, police chaplains are available 24/7, including weekends and holidays. The service provided by chaplains to our officers—and to our community as a whole—is extremely important. We are very fortunate that Chaplain Koss decided to join the Lake Forest Park Police Department family. Chief Mike Harden offered this insight: “I strongly believe that a chaplaincy program can support a culture where officers feel comfortable seeking help and finding support, and I also know that chaplaincy programs can also serve as support systems for officers following critical incidents and other traumatic event on- or off-duty. Chaplain Koss provides a great service to our staff and the community."

Please join us in welcoming Chaplain Koss!
