About the United States Deputy Sheriff’s Association and Its Programs

The United States Deputy Sheriff’s Association (USDSA) is a 501(c)(3) national non-profit organization dedicated to the assistance and support of law enforcement, their families, and their communities through equipment, training, End of Watch donations, and citizen awareness programs.

National Officer Survival Training Program for Men and Women of Law Enforcement

USDSA offers a highly acclaimed national training program presented FREE of charge to officers across the United States.

Our programs, which have been referred to as “life changing” by attendees, are cutting edge in real world law enforcement training. USDSA’s nationally acclaimed training staff focuses on tactics and concepts which are easily learned and maintained and give officers the flexibility to deal with the countless challenging situations they encounter daily.

Equipment Donations to Underfunded Law Enforcement Agencies

USDSA donates much needed safety equipment to smaller, underfunded law enforcement entities at NO CHARGE to the department, including ballistic body armors, preliminary breath testers (PBTs), drug identification kits, emergency belt trauma kits, tactical flashlights, traffic safety vests, first aid kits, and other safety equipment.

Benefit to Families of Law Enforcement Officers Who Perish in the Line of Duty

As of January 1, 2018, our organization is proud to make a $1,000 cash donation to the beneficiary or memorial of any law enforcement officer in the United States who perishes in the line of duty.

Citizen Awareness Program to Encourage & Honor Law Enforcement

USDSA sends well over 100,000 thank you cards a year that we receive from citizens to law enforcement agencies across the U.S., fulfilling our mission to encourage the general public to support and honor our law enforcement and to give them the opportunity to recognize these officers and their sacrifices. These thank you card packages also include life-saving equipment, free of charge, to law enforcement agencies across America.
