Utilize COPS School Violence Prevention Program Funding to Improve Safety and Security

 

Every school district is working every day to improve safety and security in their school buildings. That’s why we’re proud to share that CENTEGIX solutions are eligible for COPS School Violence Prevention Program Funding

The Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS Office) is the component of the U.S. Department of Justice responsible for advancing the practice of community policing by the nation’s state, local, territorial and tribal law enforcement agencies through information and grant resources.

The COPS School Violence Prevention Program is designed to provide funding to improve security at schools and on school grounds using evidence-based school safety programs and technology.

SVPP funding will provide up to 75% funding for the following school safety measures in and around K-12 (primary and secondary) schools and school grounds:

  • “Coordination with law enforcement”

  • “Training for local law enforcement officers to prevent student violence against others and self”

  • “Metal detectors, locks, lighting, and other deterrent measures”

  • “Technology for expedited notification of local law enforcement during an emergency”

  • “Any other measure that the COPS Office determines may provide a significant improvement in security”

The following school safety measures are available through the Bureau of Justice Assistance’s (BJA’s) section of the STOP School Violence Act of 2018:

  • Development and operation of anonymous reporting systems

    • Hotlines

    • Internet websites

    • Mobile telephone applications

  • Development and operation of a school threat assessment

  • Specialized training for school officials in responding to mental health crises

  • Training for school personnel and students to prevent student violence against others and self

  • Any other measure the BJA determines may provide a significant improvement in security

Crisis Alert reduces response time and creates immediate connection to local law enforcement. Throughout the country, school districts have identified our platform as a mission-critical part of school safety plans.
