(WTNH)–Connecticut schools will get an additional $10 million to improve security.

The funds were approved under the School Security Grant Program, which was created in 2013 as part of a legislative package signed into law by Governor Dannel Malloy focusing on gun violence prevention, mental health, and school security issues.

Malloy announced the grants on Friday. The money will go towards enhancing security infrastructure at 182 public and private schools around the state.

Since 2013, $53 million have been made available to improve security at 1,200 Connecticut schools.
