Applications are now invited from local voluntary and community groups who can contribute towards two of the Police and Crime Commissioner’s strategic objectives in his Police and Crime Plan priorities, which are:
- Reducing Re-Offending
- Serious Organised Crime and Terrorism
Some examples of projects that may be considered include those that aim to reduce exploitation of young people through gang membership, reduce or prevent violent crime, rehabilitate offenders or prevent exploitation by organised criminals.
However, all applications will be required to submit clear evidence of how their project or activity already contributes towards achieving the key aim indicated.
The closing date for this round of applications is 12pm Tuesday 17th July 2018 and applications will be considered jointly by the Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) and the Chief Constable.
A further funding round will be opened later in the year focussing on the Police & Crime Plan priorities of vulnerability, and prevention and early intervention.
