PCC launches the New Initiatives Fund
Nick Alston is delighted to invite applications for the New Initiatives Fund created to perform crucial work in helping keep Essex safe. Bids are welcomed from any partnerships or organisations whose projects, services or activities contribute towards the priority areas set out in the Police and Crime Plan for Essex.
The Police and Crime Commissioner has allocated £500,000 to the New Initiative Fund for 2013. Key areas of focus include: reducing domestic abuse; delivering local solutions for local problems; supporting victims of crime; reducing youth offending and re-offending in general; tackling the consequences of drug and alcohol abuse; managing mental health issues; improving crime prevention; and improving road safety. The work undertaken by the successful projects will complement and support existing excellent initiatives.
