The WCSDA was incorporated in 1972 and is celebrating 50 years of service in 2022! Representing the nearly 400 Deputy Sheriffs of Washoe County, our mission is to provide members with excellent service and representation. Our members are entrusted to maintain safety and security of the Washoe County Regional Detention Facility, patrol unincorporated areas of the county, serve as bailiffs in the Second Judicial District Court, and tasked with a myriad of other assignments which are required of a modern law enforcement agency. The WCSDA is proud to serve the Deputy Sheriffs of Washoe County!
The WCSDA is a member of the Public Safety Alliance of Nevada, which is by far the largest collective political association of law enforcement officers in the state. Representing thousands of police professionals from numerous agencies, PSAN actively engages in the political arena. Please see our Endorsements page for our recommendations for the 2022 General Election.
