Grant Money For Security

Sexual assault, domestic violence and stalking are problems on many college campuses and universities. The Justice Department is awarding $8.1 million dollars to schools in 21 states to combat these crimes. A portion of the money will go towards data collection and communications systems and capitol improvements as part of a comprehensive effort to address violence against women on campuses. If youâre in the neighborhood, it might be a good idea to get in touch with one of these schools.
