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.
