Applicants sought for key police funds

Swindon Advertiser: Angus Macpherson Angus Macpherson

COMMUNITY groups and organisations are being reminded about the deadline for applications for the third and final round of the Police and Crime Commissioner’s £1m Innovation Fund.

Police and Crime Commissioner for Wiltshire and Swindon Angus Macpherson is looking to commission community and voluntary projects which aim to reduce crime and anti-social behaviour and aid schemes supporting victims and vulnerable people in innovative ways. The deadline for applications for the third funding round is March 3. A total of £330,000 has been allocated for this round.

Mr Macpherson said: “The Innovation Fund is a one-off fund I decided to set up following taking office. Through the fund I have supported some new and exciting projects in line with my six main priorities and I’m now looking forward to receiving the applications for this final funding round.”

The six main priorities are: work with communities and partners to reduce crime and anti-social behaviour; protect the most vulnerable in society; put victims and witnesses first; reduce offending and re-offending; drive up standards of customer service; and ensure unfailing and timely response to calls for assistance.

To all of those people who continually bleat on about supposed 'cuts', what are your views on this £1,000,000 of public money that the PCC has available to dish out on a whim?

If they really want to:


Work with communities and partners to reduce crime and anti-social behaviour; protect the most vulnerable in society; put victims and witnesses first; reduce offending and re-offending;


Sacking the current crop of judiciary would be a good place to start, because until they're gone - or are forced to correct their mindset - nothing will change.
