BART is getting religion.
The transit system will swear in four new police chaplains at noon Tuesday at the Metropolitan Transportation Commission Center in Oakland.
BART officials said the chaplains will provide spiritual guidance and counseling to police officers. That guidance will be for traumatic events as well as general emotional needs.
The chaplains also will help victims of crime and serve as a link between police and the community.
BART officials said the chaplains, who come from diverse backgrounds, have agreed to serve without compensation. They'll wear BART police uniforms with a chaplain insignia.
