Budd, Tillis Secure $125,000 Grant for Rowan-Salisbury Schools to Expand Resource Officer Program

Washington, D.C. — Today, Senators Ted Budd (R-NC) and Thom Tillis (R-NC) announced that a $125,000 Community-Oriented Policing Services (COPS) hiring grant has been awarded to the Rowan-Salisbury School System. The funding will support the hiring of a new school resource officer.

Senator Budd sent a letter of support for this grant funding on August 8, 2023.

Senator Budd said in a statement:

“I am thrilled to announce that Rowan County Schools was awarded this competitive grant funding. SROs play a critical role in fostering trust and safety in the county’s schools, and I’m proud to have played a part in improving officers’ relationships with the student body.”

Senator Tillis said:

“Funding law enforcement is one of my key priorities, and I am proud of Rowan County for working to keep their schools safe by hiring a new SRO through the COPS Hiring program.”

Rowan County Sheriff Travis Allen said:

“We are prioritizing school safety in Rowan County and adding this new SRO will greatly enhance these efforts. This DOJ funding is certainly a boon, and I appreciate Senators Tillis and Budd for their support. It is important that our students are safe in school. A new SRO will help relieve responsibilities of the primary SRO, thus furthering the development of positive relationships with the students which will, in turn, help to build trust.”
