Crime and Offending

Can you help reduce re-offending and prevent cyber-crime? You may be interested in the new grant round of the Police Property Act Fund.

The Fund, jointly managed by the Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) and the Chief Constable, is created from money recovered by the police and the proceeds from the sale of items that cannot be returned to identified owners, which includes seizures from criminals.

Chief Constable, Francis Habgood said: “I am committed to working together to make our communities safer. This source of funding is an excellent way to offer support to community and voluntary groups working with us across Thames Valley.

We know that many cases of cybercime can be prevented so I will be particularly keen to receive bids that will help get those messages across. Reducing offending by young people is also a key priority in this bidding round and I am sure that there are many organisations working in this area who could increase their impact with additional support.”

Applications are now invited from local voluntary and community groups who can demonstrate that they help to reduce crime and/or police workload. The deadline for applications is 9am on 22nd September 2016
