Fleming congratulates area school districts for safety grants

HARRISBURG, April 26 – State Rep. Justin Fleming, D-Dauphin, today announced that over $1.14 million in state grants have been awarded by the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency to reduce gun and group violence in local Dauphin County schools.

“Every child in our community should feel safe in school so they can flourish and preventing acts of violence is the best way to do that,” Fleming said. “These grants, which were funded by our votes in Harrisburg, will give our schools the tools they need to be more effective when it comes to reducing violence.”

The total award amounts approved for schools in the district are:

  • Central Dauphin School District - $307,321
  • Susquehanna Township School District - $631,469
  • Dauphin County Technical School - $70,000
