"Safety and Security Around the Clock"

The National Association of School Safety and Law Enforcement Officials (NASSLEO) organization was established to foster, promote and develop among its membership, the profession of safety and security in K-12 educational institutions in Canada and the United States of America. It is NASSLEO’s belief that there is no better way to ensure the long-term sustainability of this endeavor than to provide financial assistance to graduating high school seniors who have chosen to further their education, and who will be enrolled full-time in a degree or diploma program at a recognized university or college.
