It is important that the Constabulary is able to focus on policing – identifying threats and risks, protecting the community and pursuing those who wish us harm.
The Commissioner looks beyond policing – seeking to help prevent crime and offending, to support the vulnerable and those who have been victims of crime. The PCC’s work addresses the needs of victims beyond the immediate policing of the crime, helps police officers to be effective in their role, and ensures that as many police officers as possible are released to the frontline.
One of the ways the PCC does this is by working with, and providing funding for, a variety of services that seek to:
- prevent people from becoming victims;
- help those who have been affected by crime on their recovery journey;
- help people avoid triggers that might otherwise lead them into anti-social behaviour or crime.
In 2019/20 the Commissioner has invested over £4,465,129 in grants and services to support victims of crime or to prevent crime and reduce offending, £1,915,766 through the grants programme and £2,549,363 via contracts. Details of the investments can be found below.
