Community groups celebrate funding boost from Police and Crime Commissioner

Published on Tuesday 16 November 2021

Community groups across Derbyshire have secured a share of £100k to support the fight against antisocial behaviour and neighbourhood crime.

Twenty-two organisations have successfully applied for funding as part of Derbyshire Police and Crime Commissioner Angelique Foster's new Antisocial Behaviour Prevention Grant scheme.

The funding, which has been allocated in individual grants of up to £5,000, gives communities greater power to tackle the problems that bring misery to local people.

It is part of the Police and Crime Commissioner Angelique Foster's Police and Crime Plan pledge to prioritise antisocial behaviour and give communities the support and resources they need to address issues that impact on quality of life.

The funding will be used to install or upgrade CCTV cameras in key public spaces, deliver sessions for young people to keep them focused and active and divert them from crime and install new security measures to protect property and deter crime.

Police and Crime Commissioner Angelique Foster said: "Making sure our communities feel supported and listened to is a top priority for me. Antisocial behaviour is a common worry for residents, and I am determined to make a difference by taking action.

"This funding will help us tackle immediate problems but it also aims to prevent antisocial behaviour happening in the first place, stopping young people from entering the justice system and becoming caught in a negative cycle.

"There is a great deal of work being undertaken by our safety partners to combat antisocial behaviour. This funding will complement that work while helping communities to take control of the problems that impact their lives."

Calls in relation to antisocial behaviour have increased by almost 70% in the past year during the health crisis. This is also reflected in cases being managed by Derbyshire Victim's Services.

Commissioner Angelique Foster has pledged to visit each of the projects she has funded to review their progress.

Alongside tackling antisocial behaviour, she has also vowed to deliver strong local policing, improve road safety, strengthen the response to rural crime, and deliver efficiencies in services to maximise the service local people receive and reduce fear of crime.

The funding is one of two schemes being launched by the Commissioner in 2021-22 totalling £200k. The second scheme, due to be unveiled soon, will support projects that aim to improve road safety.
