PCC funding for crime reduction initiatives

The Office of the Police & Crime Commissioner is giving out more than £2.5 million community funding in 2017/18 that aims to make our communities safer. Find out more below:

Proceeds of Crime Fund

The Commissioner’s Proceeds of Crime Fund is seeing 100 percent of funding received by Staffordshire Police going back into local communities, through grants of between £3,000 and £15,000.

It is made up of money seized from criminals as Staffordshire Police continue to strip offenders of their assets. Partner agencies involved in community safety locally can apply individually or in collaboration.

People Power Fund 

The Commissioner's People Power Fund sets out to empower local communities to find solutions to community safety problems in their area through small grants of between £100 and £3,000.

These could range from the provision of positive activities for young people with the aim of reducing anti-social behaviour (ASB), mentoring programmes for targeted groups within a community, through to funding reassurance activities and public confidence events in specific areas.

Locality Deal Fund

The Commissioner’s Locality Deal Fund has allocated money to local areas through working in partnership with local district and borough councils, like Lichfield District Council.

Successful projects in all three funding streams are delivering what’s important to local people based on the four priorities set out in the Commissioner’s Safer, Fairer, United Communities Strategy – tackling the root causes of crime through early intervention, supporting victims and witnesses better, reducing reoffending and increasing public confidence.
