Do you have an idea that helps prevent and tackle crime and anti-social behaviour in Essex? Would you like up to £20,000 to help make your community project a reality?
If yes and your project supports the Essex Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner’s priorities then you can apply in the third round of the Community Safety Development Fund.
The PFCC’s Police and Crime Plan priorities are: • Providing more local, visible and accessible policing • Cracking down on anti-social behaviour • Breaking the cycle of domestic abuse • Reversing the trend in serious violence • Tackling gangs and organised crime • Protecting children and vulnerable people • Improving safety on our roads
