The second round of the Safer Streets Fund has now been allocated. The fund has been established to target neighbourhood crimes such as burglary and robbery. Bedfordshire Police will receive £432,000 from the fund and the Bedfordshire PCC has agreed to match the project with an additional £273,000. This money will carry out the installation of 15 audio enabled CCTV cameras, 100 camera doorbells, 1,000 property marking kits and two community events.
South West Bedfordshire MP, Andrew Selous, said,
‘I welcome the Safer Streets funding from the Government, everyone has the right to feel safe when they are walking on the streets in South West Bedfordshire, this money will go a long way to ensuring constituents’ safety.’
