Safer streets

The Home Office (HO) has launched the prospectus for a second round of funding for the Safer Streets Fund 2021/22. Police and Crime Commissioners (PCCs) and local authorities can apply for funding for crime prevention plans in areas affected by high levels of neighbourhood crime, such as burglary and robbery.

The LGA has worked closely with the HO to call for councils to be able to apply for this funding, so we are pleased this has been opened out to local authorities in the second round. The deadline for bids is March 25. For further information, please contact Rachel.Phelps@local.gov.uk.
