PCC funding allocations announced

The Home Office has announced their proposals for funding for each police force area online at www.parliament.uk/documents/commons-vote-office/December_2012/19-12-12/13.HOME-Police-Funding.pdf.

Table 3 of the document shows the amount to be allocated to each PCC Community Safety Fund.

The majority of central government funding streams for drugs, crime and community safety will come to an end this financial year. Instead PCCs will be able to commission or fund community safety activity in line with their police and crime plans from their Community Safety Fund.

The Community Safety Fund is un-ring-fenced and it is up to each PCC to decide what proportion of it they spend on the range of different activities to address drugs, crime and community safety.
