Who is eligible for the School Safety Grant in Wisconsin?
Wisconsin Act 109 created the school safety grant that requires every school district and private school governing body in Wisconsin to submit school blueprints to the local law enforcement agency. The purpose of the grant is to provide digital mapping to local, county, state, and federal first responders, allowing them to enhance security and increase situational awareness. The Wisconsin Department of Justice (DOJ) Office of School Safety (OSS) has replenished 2021 Wisconsin Act 109 digital mapping grant funds, with an additional $1,528,341.03 allocated to address the unmet need and invites applications from Wisconsin public, private, charter, and tribal schools interested in obtaining digital mapping data.
Do you have successful case studies of critical incident mapping data implementation?
Yes, there have been successful case studies in various states and districts. For example, Delaware and New Jersey had all of their public and private schools mapped and Virginia has had over 90% of their schools mapped by Critical Response Group.
