Schemes to tackle crime and disorder given cash injection

SCHEMES to help tackle crime and disorder have received a boost from the Warwickshire Police and Crime Commissioner.

Phillip Seccombe has injected £1.6 million into 60 projects across the county, including services for victims of domestic abuse, sexual exploitation and hate crime.

Other schemes combating rural and cyber crime are also set to receive injections as well as Neighbourhood Watch projects and the Warwickshire Youth Parliament’s ‘Don’t Hate, Educate’ scheme, which raises awareness of hate crime particularly in LGBT communities.

Mr Seccombe said: “I have been able to support a wide mix of projects large and small reaching every corner of the county. Delivered by various organisations, each funded project will help to address the priorities of my Police and Crime Plan and ultimately make a big contribution to making Warwickshire safer and more secure.”
