At WACOPS, we know a hero when we see one. When you serve as a peace officer, it’s more than a job. It’s a lifestyle, a mission, even a calling. Few people know what you put into it — the hours, the training, the missed moments with family. You welcome innovation and you strive for progress. You’re driven to protect the public and serve with distinction. But all too often you’re misunderstood and misrepresented. We’ll never stop fighting for you. For your safety. Your benefits. Your quality of life. And your ability to be an indispensable part of what makes our communities work.

Wear The Badge
