On November 28, 2001, Judith Joseph met with representatives from the Newtown Township, PA, Police and Emergency Services. At that evening's Township Meeting, the Supervisors had a ceremony to honor their police, fire, ambulance and safety personnel and then unanimously voted to appoint Judith C. Joseph as the official chaplain for the township Police and Emergency Services. She served in this capacity for almost five years and was honored and humbled by this opportunity to use her chaplaincy, training and trauma response skills to support her community.
