Welcome to the new WS&DSA Website!

WS&DSA has been developing this great new tool to keep membership better informed and connected. Many thanks to our Communications Committee Chair Luke Johnson and members Chad Roberts and Chris Zunker for their work in getting the new website launched.

We will also be using the site to help market the Association and highlight great work being done by all its leadership. This new site can easily process membership dues and event registrations along with payments. Members are now able to update their own records at any time, which are searchable so other members can easily find you!

Please pardon our dust, the site is still under construction. But we invite you to come and see what we’ve started and to send us your feedback on future improvements and additions.

If you have any problems with the new website, or have content to forward, contact Sandy Schueller at info@wsdsa.org .

Thank you for being a member of WS&DSA, and I look forward to serving you as we grow the Association.

Current Issue


The Wisconsin Sheriffs and Deputy Sheriffs Association annual scholarship award program was developed to offer financial assistance to full-time students enrolled in Criminal Justice programs at any college or university. Its purpose is to encourage educational growth and professionalism among police officers and deputy sheriffs.

Seven $500 scholarships will be awarded, and winners will be selected on a competitive basis. Any Wisconsin state resident that is enrolling in a college, and has a course of study leading to a degree in law enforcement, is eligible.

The District Director of this association selects scholarship recipients. All decisions made by the Director are final.

The recipient must submit proof of his/her enrollment at an accredited college/university. Awards are not retroactive and may not be credited to semesters already completed. Recipient must be enrolled in the fall semester of this year. After the student has submitted proof of enrollment, a check for the scholarship award will be given directly to the scholarship recipient.
