Episode #030 - Please welcome The Rev. Mark F. Arbeen, Chaplain Program Manager, Office of Equity and Employee Support Services. Chaplain Arbeen joined the USSS in 2011 as a Contract Specialist in the Procurement Division. In 2012, he transferred to the Technical Security Division as the Program Control and Integration Officer. While working for TSD, Chaplain Arbeen was preparing to serve as a Deacon in the Roman Catholic Church, being ordained in February 2018. Chaplain Arbeen, under the direction of Ms. Carolyn McMillon, helped develop the Chaplain Program. The Program currently consists of 144 local, volunteer, Chaplains throughout the United States that serve our Special Agents, Uniform Division Officers, Technical Law Enforcement Officers, and Administrative, Professional, and Technical personnel, and their families, during times of personal and professional need, National Special Security Events, and during catastrophic events. Volunteer Chaplains provide supportive care for employees and their immediate family members in times of need. Chaplains may help to provide for the spiritual, personal, and social needs of the individual in support of the goals and objectives of the Chaplain Program, including offering spiritual insight and perspectives on personal and professional struggles associated with the risks implicit in the law enforcement culture. Chaplain Arbeen is a veteran of the United States Navy, and attended the Protestant Episcopal Theological Seminary in Alexandria, Virginia.
