Three Montana schools have received grants from the Department of Justice to bolster school security.

The University of Montana will receive $1 million, the Polson School District will get $476,000 and the Browning Public School District will receive $150,000.

According to the DOJ, President Trump signed the STOP School Violence Act into law in March.

The Act authorizes grants that are designed to improve threat assessments, train students and faculty to provide tips and leads, and prepare law enforcement officers and emergency professionals to respond to school shootings and other violent incidents.
