Policing minister visit in Portsmouth

14 June 2021

Police and Crime Commissioner, Donna Jones, took Kit Malthouse MP, Minister for Crime and Policing, around the Charles Dickens Ward in Portsmouth to hear from local residents the difference the Safer Streets project will make to the community.

£423,851 has been awarded to Portsmouth under the latest allocations from the Safer Streets Fund. The funding will be used to improve street lighting, redesign of some secluded areas and improve lines of sight and deter drug use through vegetation management and the installation of buggy and wheelchair friendly gates to reduce the use of motorbikes on footpaths. Priority locations identified for interventions are Paradise Street, Craswell Street, April Square, Arundel Street and park, and Lake Road.
