South Bend Police Department gets help against bullies

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- South Bend Police got a big boost to help reduce school violence.

Congressman Joe Donnelly announced they would get a $167,000 grant on Friday morning.

Donnelly says the money will help build safety programs tailored to each school and support partnerships between police, teachers, parents, and students.

The “Cops Secure Our Schools” grant is funded through the U.S. Department of Justice.

South Bend Police Chief Darryl Boykins says that he is honored.

He told ABC 57 that the grant will help sustain a program that provided security in South Bend Schools. It will mentor a positive interaction with students and police.

Boykins added, “We thank Congressman Donnelly for his friendship and dedicated assistance to The South Bend Police Department and the students of South Bend."
