PCC's Community and Criminal Justice Fund open
This year’s Community & Criminal Justice Fund has been launched and is looking for proposals which promote crime reduction and support victims or witnesses in Hertfordshire.
 
Previously David Lloyd, the Police and Crime Commissioner for Hertfordshire, has allocated approximately £1m annually  to a range of projects, which are available to view on this page (opens new window).
 
There is particular interest in schemes that pilot early intervention activities through out of court disposals, deferred prosecutions or court orders. A core commitment of the PCC’s Police and Crime Plan is partnership working to reduced the overall level of reoffending by addressing the underlaying causes through continued collaboration and new innovative reponses.
 
This opportunity is aimed encourages applicants to come up with proposals that strive to work with Criminal Justice partners. One year of funding is available to pilot new programmes, and there needs to be a strong emphasis on evaluation.
 
District or County Community Safety Partnerships, statutory organisations including Hertfordshire Constabulary, third sector organisations and businesses/profit making enterprises are eligible to submit proposals.
 
The deadline for proposals is Friday 23rd July 2021.
