Since 1999, the Law Enforcement Chaplaincy Service in Sonoma County has provided support to law enforcement, firefighters, emergency medical personnel, their families, and members of our community who find themselves in the midst of tragedy and loss.

Our Mission

Our mission is to respond to requests from law enforcement and provide immediate emotional support and follow up care to them and to the members of our community who have suffered tragedy and loss. We are an interfaith community of compassionate volunteers without religious, political, or legal agendas.


The LECS Chaplains provide services that are professional and supportive to community members during times of personal crisis. It is a fantastic resource for the community and to my officers.
