    £1.5m extra funding for County Durham

    County Durham and Darlington Police and Crime Commissioner Joy Allen has secured funding worth almost £1.5million to crackdown on anti-social behaviour and neighbourhood crime – and boost women’s safety.

    The PCC submitted four successful bids to the fourth round of the Home Office’s Safer Streets Fund, developed in partnership with Darlington Borough Council and Durham County Council, and netted a seven-figure pot to invest in safety improvements and crime prevention programmes across County Durham and Darlington over the next two years.
