“Breaking the Cycle of Crime One Inmate at a Time”

Volunteers play an important role in the chaplain program in Contra Costa County. Each volunteer who funtions inside the jail is cleared and approved by the chaplains and the Sheriff’s Department. The clearance process takes two months or more and includes a background check.
