Williams congratulates area school districts for safety grants

HARRISBURG, April 25 – State Rep. Dan Williams, D-Chester, today announced that state grants have been awarded by the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency to several Chester County schools to reduce gun and group violence.

“Our children’s lives are our most precious resource, and we must do everything we can to protect them,” Williams said. “These grants, which were funded by our votes in Harrisburg, will help support and protect children’s lives by giving our schools the tools they need to increase school security, provide mental health resources for students, and reduce violence.”
