Serving Those Who Protect

Chaplain services for Phoenix P.D. Law Enforcement and their families.

Why Chaplains Are Critical

The demands, expectations, and stresses have never been higher on our law enforcement professionals, their families, and the civilians that support them.

Lack of Resources

Resources for law enforcement and their family have never been less available, and in some cases, they just don’t exist.  Officers need resources such as professional services, life coaching, leadership training, and values reinforcement.

The Toll

Police Officers continue to face the highest statistics for Divorce, Suicide, Substance Abuse, Domestic Violence, Stress-related illness, disease and disorders, and the quickly rising rate of Post Traumatic Stress.

The Threat

Police Officers are under constant threats to mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual health.  Threats such as Death, Health Risks, Legal action, Negative Public Image, Isolationism, Disillusionment, Family conflict and Financial pressures.


Law Enforcement Professionals need a safe place to address professional, private, personal and spiritual issues without fear of repercussions. PARACLETE Chaplains enjoy the protection of the Clergy-Penitent Privilege, assuring the highest level of confidentiality.

Your support makes both an impact in their lives today, but one that carries through into eternity.
