Massachusetts State Police Colonel Christopher Mason on Wednesday, October 12, welcomed Reverend Dr. Kate Galop as a new member of the Department’s Chaplain Corps.

Reverend Galop, the MSP’s first female Chaplain, serves as the Senior Pastor at Westport Point United Methodist Church in Westport and as Chaplain for the Westport Fire Department.

Colonel Mason said Reverend Galop’s appointment is part of an effort to expand the MSP’s Chaplaincy mission to “create more opportunities for officers to engage” clergy as they deal with the stresses and challenges of the law enforcement profession. Colonel Mason said the mission of police Chaplains is an important component of overall officer wellness.

Reverend Galop was sworn-in in Colonel Mason’s office at General Headquarters in front of five of the Department’s six other Chaplains.

Prior to being ordained as Senior Pastor at Westport Point UMC, Reverend Galop served as assistant to the pastor of Northside Methodist Church in Brewster. She holds Doctorate of Ministry and Master of Divinity degrees from Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary in Lynchburg, Va., and earned an ordination certification from Boston University’s School of Theology.
