History of Adopt-a-Cop
Adopt-a-Cop was initiated by Chaplain Sgt. Ken Rochell of Michigan State Police in 1998. Ken began this ministry to serve as a bridge between local churches and their local law enforcement agencies. Ken serves as a Michigan State Police Recruiter.
A personal note from Kenneth L. Rochell:
As a police officer, I know the importance of back up. Nothing is more comforting than hearing the sounds of a distant siren coming to help you regardless of the color of your uniform or the department you work for.
As a Christian officer, I also know the importance of prayer. I feel it has been the prayers of my family and friends that have kept me safe not only physically but emotionally. Those prayers have also given me a heart for the people I have sworn to protect and serve.
It is comforting to know that I have people who are praying for me and my family every day I go out on the road.
God Bless and many thanks,
Kenneth L. Rochell
