The Diplomatic Security Special Agent Association (DSSAA) is a fraternal, benevolent association, classified as a 501(c)(6) with the IRS, which is open to all employees of the Diplomatic Security Service, not just Special Agents.
DSSAA fosters the development of professional and personal relationships between DS Special Agents, DS personnel (former and current), other fraternal law enforcement organizations, law enforcement agencies, and members of the intelligence community.
DSSAA strives to establish a focal point of communication and promote the exchange of information regarding matters that are of mutual concern to DSSAA members.
DSSAA cannot serve as a bargaining unit, but endeavors to actively promote projects designed to support and benefit its members and their families.
DSSAA pledges itself to both the DSSAA member and their family. This is why the DSSAA motto is "Serving Those Who Serve".
