At the beginning of 2020, the Home Office launched the Safer Streets Scheme, with funding available for Police and Crime Commissioners to bid against. This grant stream was set up to support initiatives to tackle crime in areas particularly affected by acquisitive crime such as burglary, vehicle crime and robbery.
The funding is intended to go towards measures that are proven to cut crime, including changes to the street scene such as locked alley gates and better lighting, and the installation of CCTV.
The OPFCC made bids to fund three projects in Northamptonshire and all three were successful and the Home Office awarded £1.475m to fund crime fighting projects in Wellingborough, Kettering and Northampton.
The successful bids were:
These three areas were chosen because they have levels of acquisitive crime that are higher than average for the county. Work on all three projects, which will be carried out with partners including Northamptonshire Police and the three local authorities, will begin as soon as possible.
