Does any agency use Chaplains and if so, what do you give them for a uniform?
MSP does but I have no idea if they get a uniform or not. I've only seen them at wakes and funerals and they are ironicly dressed like priests
They used to as honorary Captains but they had to give them back recently.
Larger departments sometimes have a Chaplain to serve each major religious community. Ft. Lauderdale, Florida has several Chaplains and they're uniformed.
I recall a sworn officer from a town north of Boston who was also a minister. He wore a cross on his uniform shirt.

We have three chaplains. One is a working Uniform Division Sergeant, so he wears his regular uniform.
The catholic chaplain has a chaplains badge that he'll wear on a chain with his regular clergy uniform.
Our Jewish chaplain routinely goes out on ride alongs often (probably 2-3 times a week). He also wears a badge on a chain but he wears black BDU pants, black boots, a uniform jacket and baseball hat says CHAPLAIN in big letters. He also had a class A uniform for ceremonies.
We have Catholic and Protestant Chaplains (no need for any other faith so far), and they just wear their regular clerical dress, although they were (not sure anymore) issued gold "Chaplain" badges.
They were issued uniforms from their chosen profession...... Nuf said
