A total of £1.6m is available to groups and organisations looking to support Sir Clive Loader’s police and crime plan for next year and beyond.
The county’s first police and crime commissioner has announced two funding streams; £1.2m from the Partnership and Locality Fund for the period 2014/15 to 2016/17; and £400,000 from the Police and Crime Commissioner Grant for 2014/15.
The plan includes four key aims: reducing offending and reoffending; supporting victims and witnesses; making communities and neighbourhoods safer; and protecting the vulnerable.
The funds are now available for partner organisations and applications can be made online at www.leics.pcc.police.uk
Sir Clive said: “I announce this, the latest round of funding, encouraging all those applying to the fund to have partner collaboration and shared goals in mind wherever possible.
“I commission outcomes, not services.
“All those applying should have clear outcomes in mind which contribute to delivering the targets in the Police and Crime Plan and to making our society safer.”
