Chaplain Don Dinerstein was appointed as NPD's Chaplain in October, 2023. He presently serves as the Security Supervisor for the South Beach Church Safety Team. His duties there include staffing, training, and implementing a security team of ten participating volunteers (including former law enforcement and military veterans) to observe and recognize any potential threats to the safety of the congregation, guests, staff, and Pastors.
Prior to Chaplain Dinerstein's relocation to Newport, he and his wife raised their children in Connecticut. "It was there, when as a first responder EMT, I joined a team of Chaplains and ministered to firefighters and police working the "Mound" in the aftermath of 9/11. The inspiration drawn from that experience led me on a path to become a Crisis Chaplain, and serve in various public safety and law enforcement roles." While residing in Stonington, Connecticut, he served as a first responder, EMT, Crisis Chaplain, and Fire-Police Officer for the Old Mystic Fire Department. He was responsible for the emergency medical care and emotional crisis support of victims at fire, MVA’s and medical emergencies. As a Fire/Police officer, he was responsible for scene safety in association with local police for ‘on-scene’ crowd and traffic control, including assisting State Troopers on the interstate and local roadways. In 2004, he received an honorable mention and an award for being number five of the top ten first responders for the year, having attended over three hundred medical, MVA, and fire emergencies that year.

Chaplains of all faiths work with law enforcement personnel on a professional level by making themselves immediately available as trained and caring professionals who can assist in times of loss, confusion, depression, or grief to people in crisis situations. The Chaplains provide this service not only to the community, but also to all Department employees and their families as well.
Some of the duties of the Police Chaplain may include riding along with officers on routine patrol on various shifts; accompanying a police officer to assist with notification of any suicide, death or serious injury; counseling Department members in response to stress or family crisis problems; visiting with sick or injured members of the Department at their home or in the hospital; offering prayers at special occasions such as recruit graduations, award ceremonies and dedications; advising the Chief of Police in all matters of a religious nature involving the Police Department and performance of law enforcement duties in the community. Further, Chaplains act as liaison with local ministerial associations and on matters pertaining to the moral, spiritual, and religious welfare of police personnel.
