What is Law Enforcement Chaplaincy Sacramento (LECS)?

The Law Enforcement Chaplaincy Sacramento (LECS) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, charitable

organization committed to serving law enforcement personnel and their families, victims of crime

and tragedies, and the community at large. LECS is the only service of its kind that provides

24-7-365 rapid response teams alongside law enforcement agencies with on-scene emotional

crisis support. Chaplains are experts in the aftermath of grief and loss.

 

LECS serves 19 different law enforcement agencies, 16 local school districts, State and County

government agencies, customer based retail businesses and various churches throughout the

region. LECS provides families with immediate practical guidance, and valuable resources of what

happens next, after their loss.

 

To what kinds of incidents does LECS respond?

LECS responds to a wide variety of critical incidents, including serious accidents, suicides,

homicides or suspicious deaths, sudden infant deaths, barricaded subjects, missing persons,

industrial accidents, unexpected natural deaths, death notifications, and many others. Typically,

we are deployed by law enforcement dispatchers within moments of officers’ arrival on scene.

Prevention programs, intervention services and aftermath post-vention services complement the

first responder calls within the Sacramento community.

 

What makes LECS Chaplains different?

The Law Enforcement Chaplaincy Sacramento (LECS) has been named “The Model Chaplaincy In

the Nation” because of its exceptional organizational structure, its extensive training requirements,

and its rapid response capability. LECS Chaplains Academy, which is accredited through the Los

Rios Community College, consists of 150-hours of academic classroom and field service training.

All LECS Chaplains are background tested, pass two-oral interviews and must agree to continuing eduational requirements and mandatory group monthly trainings.  

 

Further, LECS Chaplains are Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST) certified post-trauma

and crisis responders. Chaplains are trained in the areas of crime scene integrity, psychological

first aid, school crisis intervention, mass casualty evacuation scene support, search and rescue

field operations, Town Hall meeting strategies, and Family Assistance Centers’ management.

 

Since 1977, LECS has been supported by individual donations, corporate sponsors, churches, clubs, small businesses, contract service grants and various fundraising campaigns.  All Chaplaincy services are entirely free.
