Durham Police wins £800k bid from national Safer Streets Fund

Areas of County Durham and Darlington are set to receive specialist interventions to help cut crime and improve community safety after securing funding from the Home Office Safer Streets Fund.

Earlier this year, the Office of the Durham Police and Crime Commissioner, submitted two bids to the £25m Home Office Safer Streets Fund, in partnership with Durham County Council, Darlington Borough Council and Durham Constabulary.

Today it was announced that both bids, totalling almost £800,000 had been successful.

The funding, which is designed to support interventions in areas which suffer acquisitive crime, has been welcomed by the acting Durham Police, Crime and Victims Commissioner Steve White

“It is fantastic that we have been successful in our bids for both County Durham and Darlington,” he said.

“It will help to make a real difference as we work with our partners to address acquisitive crime in key hotspot areas in County Durham and Darlington.
