LEADERS IN SCHOOL SAFETY
Welcome to the Washington School Safety Organization website. We are an organization comprised of school resource officers, school security officers, DARE officers, school administrators, and GREAT officers dedicated to keeping our students, staff, and schools safe.
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.
Throughout Washington, students, staff and the communities we serve receive the benefits of the WSSO organization by promoting a safe and secure learning environment.
Each year at our annual conference, we bring together trainers and experts from around the state and nation to address current trends and topics in our schools. With this current knowledge and updated training, our vested attendees can provide our schools with the best skills and tools to keep our students, staff and communities safe.
COVID-19 WSSO UPDATE - August 2021
The WSSO Board is excited for the 2021-2022 school year. The community of school safety professionals has been through a lot over the last year, and we are all looking forward to easing back into regular routines. While many things are changing in the profession of school safety, one thing has remained the same: Our commitment to provide a safe and secure learning environment for the students, staff, and families.
The WSSO board has taken this time during COVID-19 to focus on redefining our mission, goals, and actions to serve the community of school safety professionals. We are re-energized and committed to providing training that is focused on current and leading practices. The WSSO board is committed to hearing from you, the school safety professionals, please stay tuned for some input and feedback opportunities.
Also, the WSSO board is planning a summer conference for 2022…look for more information coming soon.
