Grants to Virginia local government agencies to enhance partnerships and coordination between public schools and law enforcement agencies. Applicants must complete an online registration process prior to submitting an application. Funding is intended for salaries and benefits for full-time or part-time school resource officer positions to provide coverage during routine school hours.
The Virginia Department of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS) is offering a new cycle of state grants to continue funding and establish new funding for School Resource Officer (SRO) positions to establish, enhance, and continue the partnerships between local law enforcement agencies and school divisions.
A "School Resource Officer" is a certified law enforcement officer hired by a local law enforcement agency to provide law enforcement and security services to Virginia public schools. An SRO may be a full-time or part-time employee.
The only allowable expenses for these grants are salary and benefits for full-time or part-time SRO positions to provide coverage during routine school hours, which does not include school-sponsored activities outside the instructional day.
Priority will be given to localities that meet one or more of the following criteria:
GrantWatch ID#: 133812
The total amount requested in an 9-month application may not exceed $93,750 per SRO position ($125,000 annually).
For new positions, successful applicants will be funded for a period not to exceed a total of 48 months. After this period, funding will be available for continuation on an annual basis, as funding is available, but priority is given to new positions.
For grantees whose funding ended in FY22, continuation is on an annual basis, as funding is available, but priority is given to new positions.
Grants will be awarded on a competitive basis for one (1) 9-month period beginning October 1, 2022, and ending on June 30, 2023.
