Who We Are

Spokane County Chaplaincy Services (SCCS) is a nonprofit organization providing support to law enforcement personnel and agencies throughout Spokane County and surrounding areas. A Chaplaincy Board made up of law enforcement officers, pastors, and community leaders screen applicants for appointment as chaplains, and oversee the activities of the Chaplaincy which currently consists of one full-time chaplain and relies on volunteer chaplains for much of the services it provides.

Our Chaplain and Volunteer Chaplains never go off duty and provide assistance 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
