Stockton Police Chaplaincy

The primary role of a Law Enforcement Chaplain is to support Law Enforcement and assist sworn and civilian police personnel and their families. Their role is not one of providing long term support to victims. It may include initial contact with victims to help facilitate follow-up assistance. S.J. County Victim/Witness maintains the role of both short and long-term victim support of individuals within their program guidelines. The Chaplain duties will not replace or interfere with the duties of the S.J County Victim/ Witness Program.
