Andrew Snowden, the Conservative Police and Crime Commissioner for Lancashire has provided £1m to schemes in Lancashire, helping to deter crime and keep people safe.
Following successful bids into the fifth round of the Government's Safer Street's Fund, the Commissioner has now awarded money to three projects that will make areas feel safer, support enforcement and address local concerns.
A project delivering across the Pennine areas of Blackburn, Darwen, Accrington, Burnley and Rawtenstall will see £400k for the installation of new CCTV, and investment into greenspace and townlink radio.
This Safer Streets fifth round of funding is the biggest single pot to date, awarded directly to Police and Crime Commissioners. It builds on the previous rounds of Safer Streets Funding that has seen a total of £2.6m invested into 6 projects, this money will support further funding of schemes that deliver the key priorities in the Commissioner’s Fighting Crime Plan, deter crime, make areas feel safer and support enforcement.

"I'm really pleased that we have been able to utilise this investment into the fight against crime here in Lancashire, towards some fantastic projects that will make a real difference to communities across the county."
