Harrisburg, PA. — The Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency (PCCD) announced today just over $5 million in state Nonprofit Security Grant Fund Program funding for security enhancement projects for 130 churches, synagogues, and other nonprofit organizations serving diverse communities throughout the Commonwealth.

  • Safety and security planning

  • Purchase of safety and security equipment

  • Purchase of security-related technology, which may include, but is not limited to:

    • Metal detectors

    • Protective lighting

    • Surveillance equipment

    • Special emergency communications equipment

    • Electronic locksets

    • Deadbolts

    • Trauma kits

    • Theft control devices

  • Safety and security training

  • Threat awareness and response training

  • Upgrades to existing structures that enhance safety and security

  • Vulnerability and threat assessments

Specialty-trained canines

Any other safety or security-related project that enhances safety or security of the non-profit organization

A full listing of the recipients can be found attached to this release.  More information about the Nonprofit Security Grant Fund Program and the application process can be found on PCCD's website.   

PCCD's mission is to enhance the quality, coordination and planning within the criminal and juvenile justice systems, to facilitate the delivery of services to victims of crime, and to increase the safety of our communities.
