Why WACOPS?

For more than 50 years the Washington Council of Police & Sheriffs has been committed to supporting those who have dedicated their careers to protect and serve our communities as law enforcement officers by providing legislative representation, insurance products, and professional support.

The WACOPS website serves to provide members within our state’s law enforcement community with legislative, upcoming training opportunities, scholarships, insurance and legal defense information, networking with other WACOPS members, and more.


The WACOPS Government Relations Committee invites current WACOPS members to participate in our upcoming advocacy event, WACOPS Virtual Hill Week. In alignment with guidance from the WA State Health Department the WACOPS winter general membership meeting, hill day, and legislative reception in Olympia were cancelled. However, WACOPS advocacy efforts are as vital as ever to ensure the voices of rank-and-file peace officers are heard during this historic legislative session for law enforcement.

The WACOPS Government Relations Committee and lobbying team have remained flexible and adapted to new methods of voicing priorities to lawmakers. You are at the forefront of monumental police reform proposals. To ensure you still have your opportunity to be heard, our virtual advocacy event will include instruction on effective strategies to empower WACOPS members to make their message known.
