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 members 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 members can provide our schools with the best skills and tools to keep our students, staff and communities safe.
