COMMUNITY CASH TO CRACK DOWN ON CRIME (ENGLAND & WALES)

  • Comment
The home office announced that crime-fighting partnerships in England ...
The home office announced that crime-fighting partnerships in England

and Wales will share in a new£20m fund to cut crime.

The Safer Communities Initiative (SCI) will ensure that all 376 crime

and disorder reduction partnerships will benefit from extra cash

awards over the coming year (2002-03) - with high crime areas

receiving the largest funding boost.

Home office crime reduction minister John Denham said:

'For five years, crime has fallen overall, with the chances of

becoming a victim of crime last year the lowest it has been for 20

years.

'The Safer Communities Initiative provides extra resources to help

local crime-reduction partnerships to tackle crime locally.

'More than£10m will be targeted in police force areas with the

biggest problems of robbery and drug-driven violence. But the extra

funding will ensure that all our partnership areas benefit.

'The£20m funding initiative for 2002/03 is just the start.

Further money will be available this year through the CAD programme.

And Local partnerships can plan on the basis that they will receive

at least the same funding again in 2003-2004, with the likelihood

that more funding will be available in subsequent years.'

SCI will be used to support community initiatives such as:

Targeted police activity, including special operations, mobile police

stations and high visibility policing, in crime hotspots;

Tackling repeat victimisation through anti-burglary projects;

Tackling persistent offending through targeting prolific offenders

and improving security;

Tackling anti-social behaviour through interventions such as pub

watch schemes, approved tenancy schemes and anti-social behaviour

orders;

youth inclusion work, including support programmes for young

people at risk, youth diversion schemes and work with schools to

reduce truancy.

Notes

A breakdown of the allocations to partnerships by region in England,

and in Wales, is attached.

The white paper on police reform, Policing a New Century: A Blueprint

for Reform, places Crime and Disorder Reduction Partnerships at the

heart of tackling crime.

Funding under SCI has been weighted towards high crime areas. It will

be allocated to partnerships by a formula consisting of recorded

crime (80%) and an even share worth 20%.

Although figures show that in most areas crime is falling, robbery

continues to rise. It increased by 13 per cent in 2000/01 and has

risen at a greater rate over the last 12 months.

Some 52% of the funding will go to the ten police force areas

involved in the robbery reduction initiative. Street crime is

concentrated in a few, largely urban areas, and the ten police forces

deal with 82% of all robbery in England and Wales (78,071 robberies

recorded in these areas in the 12 months to March 2001).

The Ten Force Robbery Reduction Initiative covers the Metropolitan

Police, West Midlands, West Yorkshire, Greater Manchester,

Merseyside, Avon and Somerset, South Yorkshire, Nottinghamshire,

Thames Valley and Lancashire.

Under the Ten Force Robbery Reduction Initiative, which has begun

this month, police and criminal justice agencies will work together

in these areas to target and fast-track robbery offenders. The

initiative will aim to:

increase the detection rate for robbery cases;

increase the number of offenders charged and brought to justice;

speed up the process between arrest and sentence; and

deal with the offender effectively at every stage of the criminal

justice process and ultimately reduce the number of robberies in the

ten police force areas.

SAFER COMMUNITIES INITIATIVE: FUNDING ALLOCATION FOR 2002/2003

CRIME AND DISORDER REDUCTION PARTNERSHIPS WITHIN REGION

20% of the available funding has been allocated equally to all

partnerships. The remaining 80% has been allocated using the

proportion of recorded crime in that area.
