Yeah, we might not get paid well, but at least we have Tasmanian devils.  Of course, we can't afford the admission price to see them, but just knowing we have them makes us feel good.

It is not the job of the police department  to be a church or priest/rabbi/etc.

No, not at all. And it doesn't sound as though this is something APD considers part of their "job." If there are volunteers among first responders who can offer emotional help to victims of crimes or accidents, why is that a bad thing? An offer of help that's unwanted can be declined but it may be that people who've just suffered trauma of some sort are not in a position to ask for that kind of help if they need it.

I don't understand where the impulse comes from to prohibit people from offering help to other people who may need it, especially if they're not offering it on anybody's dime and it's not an official function of a government agency.

The chaplain's unit gives the impression of being a official function of a government agency. That sums up why is it  unconstitutional.   It does sound noble at first that they want to help.  How ever there are many churchs that can help. The police departament does not need to do this paid or unpaid
