We’ve received word from the Department of Justice that the COPS Secure Our Schools grant program will not be offered this spring. The COPS Secure Our Schools grant provides federal funding to police departments to partner with local schools to improve school safety. In addition to security assessments, COPS grants can be used to purchase security equipment, including security cameras and two way radios.
