The Police and Crime Commissioner receives a Community Safety Fund (CSF) from the Home Office to commission services that help tackle drugs and crime, reduce re-offending and improve community safety.
Since he was elected as Police and Crime Commissioner in 2012, Anthony Stansfeld has allocated the Community Safety Fund to upper tier Local Authorities across the force area. It is then the responsibility of each Local Authority to commission services and allocate funding according to its own priorities including to Drug and Alcohol Teams, Youth Offending Teams and Community Safety Partnerships.
In 2016/17 the Police and Crime Commissioner allocated over £3million to Local Authorities.
