Community Safety District Level Funding
From April 2020 to March 2021, the Commissioner has committed to providing community safety services funding through Safer York and the North Yorkshire Community Safety Partnerships (CSPs) to enable responsible authorities to react to emerging local community safety needs and demands for target hardening services, respond to emerging local community safety concerns or immediate crime and ASB reduction requirements and conduct planned targeted communications and social marketing interventions that link to local or strategic priorities.
The total funding available to the CSPs will be split by geographic area relative to the need and demand for community safety services, based on NYP data in relation to:
- Reported incidents of crime (volume);
- Reported incidents of anti-social behaviour (ASB volume);
- Reported incidents of public safety and welfare (PSW volume); Victims of crime; and
- Aggrieved / people reporting ASB or PSW.
Budget for Districts 2020/21: £38,199.40
