Placentia Police Chaplains are local clergy who volunteer to assist the Placentia Police Department when crisis situations occur in the city. The Chaplain Corp in Placentia is one of Orange County's oldest Chaplain Programs. They provide counseling to citizens who are victims of violent crimes or who many have suddenly lost a family member or a loved one. The Chaplains are called upon to offer prayers and invocations at City events and functions of Placentia's local government. The Chaplains can often be seen riding in the patrol car with the Police Officers where they offer assistance to the Officers and the community.
