Investing in Safer Streets8 Mar 2021
The Safer Streets Fund forms part of the UK government’s concerted action to tackle crime.
The £25 million scheme aims to stop offences that blight communities and cause misery to victims from happening in the first place.
Following a bidding process, grants of up to £550,000 were awarded to Police and Crime Commissioners in England and Wales for projects and products to improve security in areas particularly affected by acquisitive crimes such as burglary, robbery, vehicle theft and cycle crime.
The money is being spent on measures proven to cut crime including the use of around 20,000 BikeRegister bike marking kits, more than 20,000 SelectaDNA property marking kits to deter burglary; and other measures including locked gates around alleyways, increased street-lighting and the installation of CCTV.
Police forces across England & Wales have already starting using BikeRegister as part of their Safer Streets campaigns including a massive investment from Thames Valley Police to cover bike theft hotspots in East Oxford.
Other forces using BikeRegister to make their streets safer include Greater Manchester Police who are targeting high bike crime in Wigan; Lancashire Police for areas in West Lancashire; and West Yorkshire Police for hotspots in Leeds and Bradford.
