COPS School Violence Prevention Program (SVPP) Grant Program

COPS SVPP funds school safety technology that helps identify danger and improve emergency notification and response.

COPS School Violence Prevention Program

Program Goals

The School Violence Prevention Program (SVPP) from the Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS Office) is a competitive award program that helps K-12 schools improve their security and safety. The COPS Office is within U.S. Department of Justice’s Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA).

The overall goal is to increase safety by helping schools purchase software that improves:

  • information sharing between local law enforcement, first responders, and schools
  • crisis alert and notification times to law enforcement for better response times
  • identification of danger and emergencies
  • overall school safety efforts


Recipients are required to conduct a comprehensive school safety assessment during the grant award period for every school involved in the project, as well as contribute a local match of at least 25% towards the project.
