Department of Justice Announces Grant Funding for School Safety Training

U.S. Attorney Robert Duncan Jr. joined the Department of Justice on Tuesday, October 2, 2018 in announcing more than $70 million in grant funding, to bolster school security, educate and train students and faculty, and support law enforcement officers and first responders who arrive on the scene of a school violence incident. In Kentucky, $200,000 was awarded to the Kentucky Office of Homeland Security, $496,803 to the Kentucky State Police, $339,004 to Whitley County, and $358,485 to the City of Beattyville. These grants are in addition to the funding to the National Association of School Resource Officers, announced by Attorney General Jeff Sessions last week, to expand and update their curriculum to better support training programs.
