The Washington School Safety Organization goal is to unite law enforcement, security professionals and educators to develop effective community partnerships. With a strong network of experts who share this goal, and through advanced specialized training, we can ensure the safety of our schools, students and staff.
Throughout Washington, students,staff and the communities we serve receive the benefits of WSSO members by promoting a safe and secure learning environment. Every year we bring together trainers and experts from around the state and the nation, to address current trends, topics and training that promotes school safety and provides vested members with the skills and tools to better perform their jobs.
We are hoping that you will want to be a part of this organization and will join us at our Training Conference held every summer. We look forward to meeting you and working together to keep our schools safe!
In addition to our Annual Conference, we also use social media to stay on top of the current trends, provide networking opportunities, and access to the vast experience and knowledge that is available through out the state.
Welcome to the Washington School Safety Organization web site. We are an organization comprised of School Administrators, School Security Officers, DARE Officers, GREAT Officers and School Resource Officers. We combined both the Washington DARE Officer’s Association and the Washington School Security and School Resource Officer’s Association to create this new and exciting organization
