Funding for Community Safety Projects in Your Area

Alert message sent 08/12/2020 15:40:00

Information sent on behalf of Cheshire Constabulary

Good Afternoon,
A new fund has been launched by Police and Crime Commissioner David Keane for police officers and PCSOs to bid for to work with local residents on projects which make their area safer.
Ettiley Heath, Wheelock, Sandbach Heath & East has been allocated a £1,000 grant for bids that address community safety issues. An additional £10,000 has also been allocated to Crewe Local Policing Units to support a larger scale project which addresses local issues.
This Community Police Fund links directly to the recently launched initiative to increase police visibility in every community by providing a dedicated Police Constable (PC) and Police Community Support Officer (PCSO) for all 122 policing communities in Cheshire.
It has been developed using money seized under the Proceeds of Crime Act (PoCA) 2002 to send a clear message to criminals that crime doesn’t pay.
Grants will be awarded to new, one-off projects that leave a legacy as opposed to continuous year-on-year commitments. This could be, as an example, a road safety project, community engagement activities or a project which supports vulnerable people.
We will be working closely with you to develop the bids but they will be submitted to the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner directly by local policing teams.
If you have an idea how this fund could benefit your area, please contact your local policing team.
