Please find out more about these grants below:

Crime Prevention Fund

The Commissioner's Crime Prevention Fund gives organisations, charities and social enterprises the opportunity to bid for up to £25,000 to help prevent crime and protect their communities.

This Fund is used to stop problems before they occur, by reducing the opportunities for crime and by deterring people away from becoming involved in anti-social and criminal behaviour.

Police Property Act Fund

The Commissioner also runs the Police Property Act Fund. This fund gives voluntary and community organisations that are working to make a difference in their neighbourhoods the opportunity to apply for a one-off grant of up to £5,000.

These grants all go towards projects that reduce crime and anti-social behaviour, support victims or reduce reoffending and are in line with the Commissioner's Priorities.

Since 2015, grants from this fund have focussed on innovative projects that help to divert young people away from becoming involved in anti-social or criminal behaviour.

Jane wants your views on policing funding today...

The Police Commissioner has to set the police budget soon.

She wants your views on  if you would be willing to contribute an extra 19p a week in your council tax  to enable the Chief Constable to recruit 160 new police officers next year, as well help balance the budget and protect jobs?

Without the extra funding the Commissioner will have to reduce the budget, the recruitment of new officers can’t
go ahead and the Chief Constable will be required to cut back on the service again.
