The U.S. Department of Justice's Office on Violence Against Women has awarded a $300,000 grant to Bergen Community College (N.J.) for a three-year project that will include training, educational programs and physical improvements on the college's campuses. Under the grant, the college will design, develop and implement programs to prevent and reduce violence against women and other potential at-risk members of the community while ensuring support for victims of campus violence. Some of the plans include organizing a violence prevention task force on campus; developing educational programs for students about stalking, dating violence and sexual assault; providing ongoing training for designated members of the administration and staff to deal with situations involving violence against women; and enhancing training for police officers, public safety and security officers who deal with situations resulting in violence against women.
