WASHINGTON, D.C. (Oct. 1, 2009) — Today, Congressman Ike Skelton (D-Mo.) announced that the Crocker Police Department will secure more than $9,000 from the U.S. Department of Justice. The funding will be distributed through the Department of Justice’s Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) Secure Our Schools (SOS) program.

“Parents should not worry about their child’s safety in the classroom. So, I was, of course, pleased to learn that the Crocker Police Department will receive a federal grant from the Department of Justice’s Secure Our Schools program. Today’s grant will provide Crocker with the resources they need to ensure schools in the community are safe and secure,” Skelton said.

The Office of Community Oriented Policing Services Secure Our Schools program awards grants to local law enforcement agency to improve security in schools. Funding may be used to purchase technology, provide security training and technical assistance resources, and help schools coordinate with local law enforcement.
