A couple of Salina organizations that deal with drug and domestic violence prevention are awarded state funds.

According to Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt the 28th Judicial District Community Corrections was awarded $59,086 to fund a Drug Court Intensive Supervision Officer.

Domestic Violence Association of Central Kansas was awarded $45,057 to fund provide prevention and education services to middle and high school students who directly or indirectly experienced domestic and/or sexual violence or abuse in dating relationships

“Providing the best public safety services and crime prevention requires a dedicated staff of local officials,” Schmidt said. “These grants will help advance local priorities for improving public safety.”

The grants are part of the Federal Edward J. Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant Program and were awarded by the Kansas Criminal Justice Coordinating Council. Schmidt serves as the chair of the council.

Really how about teaching these kids to add, subtract and multiply without using anything electronic. They really need to get domestic violence training. How much more must we spend on drug information. Look at the money that has been spent and all the kids using drugs. This is a waste of taxpayers money.
