Mission – Vision – Core Values



The Law Enforcement Chaplaincy Sacramento (LECS) originally began in 1977 to provide pastoral care to employees of the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department. In 1993 we expanded to include all law enforcement agencies within Sacramento county. We grew by leaps and bounds and are still growing.

We currently serve multiple law enforcement agencies, their families, as well as first responders on Federal, State and local levels.


The Law Enforcement Chaplaincy Sacramento (LECS) is a non-profit, faith-based organization that helps law enforcement families by serving them when they have experienced a trauma or crisis in their life. LECS believes that Chaplains can transform others by the power of hope. Furthermore, the Law Enforcement Chaplaincy Sacramento’s purpose is to provide proactive programs to better educate, equip, prepare and empower individuals. While LECS is an organization built on Christian, Biblical principles, we serve all people, regardless of religion, race, ethnicity, age, gender or sexual preference.

The Core Values of the Law Enforcement Chaplaincy Sacramento (LECS) are intended to guide us in what we say and do. It is what each chaplain will represent. It is our personal and professional behavior that can represent God, our faith, and the departments we serve.


The primary objectives of this faith-based, non-profit organization are to support law enforcement families in professional and personal crisis, serve the community of the Greater Sacramento Region in times of crisis and tragedies, and to be a proactive and reactive resource for all.


Transparency, in the non-profit sense, is defined as the widespread availability of relevant, reliable information about the performance, financial position, and governance of an organization.
