Rupert Matthews welcomes £1.5 million in additional Government funding to crack down on burglary and theft in local crime hotspots in #Leicester, #Leicestershire & #Rutland
Rupert Matthews, Conservative Candidate for Police and Crime Commissioner in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland has welcomed the announcement that our police force will receive £1,518,306 in extra funding as part of the Government’s £25 million Safer Streets Fund–delivering on a key #Conservative manifesto commitment.
The Safer Streets Fund forms part of the Government’s concerted action to tackle crime, and aims to stop offences that blight communities and cause misery to victims from happening in the first place.
The extra funding will be aimed at improving security in areas particularly affected by acquisitive crimes such as burglary, vehicle theft and robbery.
These offences are the crimes that the public are most likely to encounter, and they are estimated to cost society billions of pounds every year.
The £1.5 million of new funding will go towards measures proven to cut crime. These include simple changes to the design of streets such as locked gates around alleyways, increased street-lighting and the installation of CCTV.
The funding will also be used to train community wardens, deliver local crime prevention advice to residents and establish Neighbourhood Watch schemes.
Police and #Crime #Commissioners were invited to bid for a share of the £25 million Safer Streets Fund in January, with each project eligible for a grant of up to £550,000. Bids were evaluated against a set criteria and bidders were asked to outline a plan to reduce crime within a local crime hotspot, demonstrating value for money, evidence of community engagement and long-term sustainability.
This additional funding comes alongside the Government’s commitment to recruit 20,000 additional police officers over the next three years, and the £1.1 billion funding boost for the policing system for 2020-21.
Commenting, Rupert Matthews said: “This Government was elected on the promise to crack down on crime and make our streets safer, and the £1.5 million announced today for Leicestershire Police will help deliver that.
“This new money will help fund proven crime cutting measures, such as increased street lighting, CCTV and locked gates around alleyways–and I am confident that this will prevent and reduce crimes such as burglary and robbery in the areas that need it most.
“I want people everywhere to feel secure in their communities and be able to live their lives free from the threat of crime, and this extra funding for Leicestershire Police will help make that possible.”
Home Secretary Priti Patel said:
“I will not stand by while criminals inflict fear and misery on our communities. That is why I set up this fund to ensure we are doing all we can to prevent people falling victim to these crimes.” ... See MoreSee Less

Coronavirus: #Luton and #Blackburn now 'areas of intervention' due to COVID-19 spikes
Two more English boroughs have joined #Leicester in reaching the highest level on the coronavirus watchlist.
Luton, in Bedfordshire, and Blackburn and Darwen, in Lancashire, have both been designated as an "area of intervention" by Public Health England (PHE).
They are now both at the same level as #Leicester and the city's neighbouring #Oadby and #Wigston, which were subject to the UK's first full local lockdown as part of the government's "whack-a-mole" strategy to deal with local flare-ups in COVID-19 infections.
Luton had not previously been on PHE's watchlist, although officials had noted an increase in COVID-19 cases in the area.
Luton Borough Council has recently been urging residents in local postcodes to book a coronavirus test, even if they didn't have symptoms. ... See MoreSee Less
