INDIANAPOLIS - More than 250 Indiana schools and school districts are sharing in some $9 million in state grants aimed at helping them boost school safety.
The grants were announced Wednesday by Gov. Mike Pence. He said in a statement that "all of Indiana's students deserve to learn and grow in a safe environment."
The governor's office says nearly $5 million of the funding through the Secured School Safety Grant Program will go toward purchasing new equipment for schools. The remaining $4 million will pay for hiring school resource officers.
Another $32,000 in grant money was awarded to four school districts for conducting school threat assessments.
The grants were approved by the Indiana Secured School Safety Board.
