"To support the Stockton Police Department personnel, their families, and the community."
The Chaplaincy program began in 1997 out of a need to serve the Officers with healthy spiritual help and advice. A letter was sent out inviting the Pastors of Stockton to consider serving in this capacity. A large number responded resulting in 16 pastors graduating from the first Chaplaincy academy.
The program has continued to grow and expand improving the effectiveness of meeting Department and Community needs.
