Schools in Draper should be a little bit safer this year after the city's police department received a grant for new school resource officers.
The $250,000 grant comes from the federal government and will partially pay for the salary and benefits of officers assigned to Corner Canyon High School and Draper Park Middle School. Both schools opened for the 2013 year, according to police.
Draper was one of 263 police departments selected for a grant out of 1,718 that applied. The funds will last 36 months with a 25 percent local matching contribution.
