The Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) STOP School Violence Grant Program improves school security by providing students and teachers with the tools they need to recognize, prevent, plan and respond to violent acts. The difference with STOP over COPS is that it is 100% of the funding over three years but is still competitive, ranging from three to six out of ten.
The Student, Teachers, and Officers Preventing School Violence Act (or STOP School Violence Act) of 2018 outlines the following categories for school safety projects:
Training to prevent student violence against others and self, including training for local law enforcement officers, school personnel, and students. CrisisGo has a full spectrum of training efforts to support you with a platform system that allows you to effectively track and construct the data you need and the processes.
The development and deployment of school threat assessment and intervention teams coordinate with law enforcement agencies and school personnel.
Systems that can help you identify school violence threats using practically any media or device.
