Dozens more Chicago public schools will be part of the Safe Passage program this year with a new $10 million investment from the state of Illinois.

The money will be used to hire 600 new Safe Passage workers.

27 schools are being added to the program, bringing the number to 120 elementary and high schools in the city's South and West side neighborhoods.

The Safe Passage program was started in 2009 to address concerns about student safety while traveling to and from school through potentially dangerous gang territories.
