Local Police and Crime Grants

The Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner (OPCC) works with a wide range of local partners and agencies to support communities and tackle concerns that matter most to local people.

One of these key partners is Community Safety Partnerships (CSP), which consists of local authorities, fire and rescue services, health, the Probation Trust and Youth Offending Teams. 

The OPCC provides a Police and Crime Grant to CSPs to support their work in assessing local community issues and commissioning local services and projects to deal with community concerns.
