The Bureau of Justice Assistance’s (BJA) FY19 Student, Teachers, and Officers Preventing (STOP) School Violence Program (SSV Program) furthers the Department’s mission by supporting and assisting state, county, local, territorial, and tribal jurisdictions in improving efforts to reduce violent crime in and around schools. BJA’s SSV Program aims to improve school security by providing students and teachers with the tools they need to recognize, respond quickly to, and help prevent acts of violence. Under Purpose Area Two, the grant recipient will use funds to develop and implement threat assessment and/or intervention teams to operate technology solutions such as anonymous reporting systems for threats of school violence, including mobile telephone applications, hotlines, and websites. These teams must coordinate with law enforcement agencies and school personnel. CA/NCF
