We know that Gloucestershire is special. What makes our Police and Crime Plan unique, is that it has mobilised entire communities to help themselves.
Through the Commissioner’s Fund, Gloucestershire’s PCC is able to fund services that will directly help to achieve our core targets. Not everything has to be delivered by or through the police and involving the community has had a real impact here in Gloucestershire.
Established in 2012, the Commissioner’s Fund supports crime reduction and community safety initiatives in Gloucestershire. The PCC allocates 1% of the overall policing budget to the Fund, to support county-based projects that deliver one or more of our priorities.
Since 2012 grants have been awarded to hundreds of community and voluntary organisations, including 470 local projects working to break the cycle of crime.
