Crime Prevention Fund

Anti-social behaviour can at times blight all of our lives. I have a zero tolerance towards anti-social behaviour, and think that the public and the police can work together to tackle the problem.

I think we all have a part to play when it comes to making Cheshire safer, and this is one of the reasons why I launched my Crime Prevention Fund in July 2013.

This April, I launched the second year of the Fund and over the past few months I've been awarding successful applicants with their money. I've been extremely impressed with the calibre of applications I've received. There have been projects which seek to involve young people, reduce crime and anti-social behaviour, reduce heritage crime and provide valuable help and support to victims. When making the decision to award money, I look for those projects which address the priority areas in my Police & Crime Plan. I want to take this opportunity to say thank you and good luck to all of the applicants. It's pleasing to see how some of these projects have brought different aspects of the community together, demonstrating to me that people are willing to help the police when it comes to tackling crime in their area.

There is still money left in this year's fund, so I encourage you to take a look at the criteria for the fund and apply. All of the information is available on my website

Unlike many or our neighbouring villages, Tarvin has had no maps on display of our historic village centre Conservation Area. Tarvin Civic Trust thought that posting a display somewhere in the village centre might fit the bill. We considered display boards of all shapes and sizes but where would we put them? Then we lit on the idea of posting a display on the back window of the bus shelter...
