The Placer County Law Enforcement Chaplaincy (PCLEC) has made available the following internal resource information so that interested parties can better understand the inner workings of the organization that has allowed the chaplaincy to provide a professional level of support services to law enforcement and the public since 1986.
The cornerstones of this organization include a clearly defined chain-of-authority, informative guidelines and processes, as well as a two-tiered learning based performance program.
We strive to ensure that our volunteer chaplains serve our citizens in a highly competent manner that is reflective of their skills based on continued specialized training. We also understand that there are inherent dangers associated with a self-taught approach to this endeavor. It is with this understanding that the Chaplaincy encourages interested parties to seek further guidance and base-line certification before assuming any role in this form of public interaction.
The following is a short list of resources to consider in the initial development of competency that is so necessary to be effective during traumatic human events:
