These include:

Police Property Act Fund

Jane's Police Property Act Fund enables her to provide one-off grants of up to £5,000 to grassroot voluntary and community organisations that are making a Merseyside a better place to live, work and visit.

In October 2013, the Commissioner also became an Ambassador for hard-hitting crime drama 'Terriers'. Terriers warns teenagers of the dangers of getting involved with gangs and guns.

The play, which is written by Merseyside playwright Maurice Bessman, speaks directly to young people to bring home the stark reality of becoming involved in serious crime, as well as addressing issues such as drugs and sexual violence. It has already been seen by more than 50,000 young people across Merseyside, as well as in schools in south London and prisons in the region, thanks to the work of the Liverpool Royal Court Trust.
