Volunteer Chaplins

The PCLEC utilizes a Corps of Volunteer Chaplains overseen by a full time paid Senior Chaplain. The PCLEC is made up of both Law Enforcement Chaplains—who work primarily with officers, deputies and their families—and a Community Chaplain Response Team—that responds primarily to Placer County Community members.

All of our chaplains are thoroughly trained and go through a specialized FTO program and receive instruction in a variety of topics such as Death Notifications, Crime Scene Logistics, Ride-Along Procedures, Bloodborne / Airborne pathogens, and suicides.
