Commissioning and Grants

The Police Reform and Social Responsibility Act 2011 widened the responsibilities of the police oversight body, providing PCCs with the ability to make crime and disorder reduction grants and commission services. The OPCC has issued grants and contracts since April 2013 and this section of the website provides information about the contracts and grants held by the PCC.

In addition, from October 2014 PCCs have responsibility for commissioning support services for victims of crime under powers given to the Secretary of State by section 56 of the Domestic Violence, Crime and Victims Act 2004 and powers under the Anti-Social Behaviour Crime and Policing Act 2014 to allow PCCs to commission services.

The PCC sets out her approach to commissioning in her 2017 Commissioning and Grants Strategy.

Information about the decisions taken to award funding can be found on the decisions page.
