Deputy Sheriffs of Missouri
DSM - Deputy Sheriffs of Missouri
|Mission Statement - The mission of the Deputy Sheriffs of Missouri is to advance the interests,
training, community awareness and involvement of Missouri Deputies, and any other person employed
by a Sheriffs Office; including other corrections and civilian staff .
Dear Deputies and the Law Enforcement Community,
The Missouri Deputy Sheriffs Association has dissolved. We are sad to see such a great
organization gone after many years of loyal service to the deputies of this state, past and
present. The Deputy Sheriffs of Missouri (DSM) was organized to help advance the
interests, training , community awareness and involvement of Missouri Deputy Sheriffs,
and others employed by a Sheriffs Office.
In recognition of your dedication to Missouri Law Enforcement ; Deputy Sheriffs of
Missouri will honor current MDSA memberships until their expiration date. We are
pleased to announce that the DSM will have a training convention at Lake Ozark (Resort
at Port Arrowhead) in October. Beginning next year we will add six regional trainings a
year to help meet the continuing education needs of our members. This will allow
sheriff's offices throughout the state to have the flexibility to send their deputies to training.
There will be a minimum of seven different opportunities for members to gather
continuing education credits a year. The trainings will cover a vast array of topics to
ensure that the deputies of this great state will be trained to the highest level, allowing for
them to complete their job with the best knowledge and skills possible.
The DSM will be unveiling new programs that benefit the deputies throughout the state as
we continue to grow. We have plans for a financial relief program for families who lose a
member deputy in the line of duty, this payments will come straight from the DSM, no
insurance forms to find, fill out and wait. Additionally at a later date it will be expanded to
include a relief benefit for deputies that are injured or facing critical illness.
The Deputies of this state deserve a thriving organization that will cater to their needs and
concerns. We want to be that organization for the deputies. Being a deputy is an
honorable profession that requires a lot of time and devotion to the local communities
they represent. We want to make sure they have the best training available to help keep
those local communities safe and secure. Please contact us if you have any questions
about the Deputy Sherriff’s of Missouri.
