LECS provides our Law Enforcement Officers and their families with immediate practical guidance, and valuable resources of what happens next, after responding to a traumatic situation or with their loss of a loved one.
Law Enforcement Officers respond 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, chaplains are deployed by law enforcement dispatchers within moments of officers' arrival on scene to provide support to Law Enforcement Officers and community members involved with the incident.
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. All LECS Chaplains are background tested, pass two-oral interviews and must agree to continuing eduational requirements and mandatory group monthly trainings.
With prevention programs, intervention services and aftermath post-vention services, our chaplains support the first responders within the Sacramento community. 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.
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.
