The Commissioner can make a crime and disorder reduction grant to any person or organisation in Merseyside helping to tackle these issues in the region.

These grants are used to help the Commissioner achieve the aims in her Police and Crime Plan while making Merseyside a safer place to live.

In 2020/21, the Commissioner awarded grants totalling £2.837m to Merseyside Police, the region's Community Safety Partnerships and two voluntary sector organisations to help her achieve her key priorities in building stronger and safer communities.

These grants are used to prevent and cut crime, reduce re-offending and improve community safety.

Please find a summary of the grants awarded for 2020/21.

The Community Safety Partnerships may produce an annual report or delivery plan to detail the work they carry out using this funding and funding from other sources.

Please find these below (please note, these will be published as produced by each of the partnerships):

Jane wants your views on policing funding today...

The Police Commissioner has to set the police budget soon.

She wants your views on  if you would be willing to contribute an extra 19p a week in your council tax  to enable the Chief Constable to recruit 160 new police officers next year, as well help balance the budget and protect jobs?

Without the extra funding the Commissioner will have to reduce the budget, the recruitment of new officers can’t
go ahead and the Chief Constable will be required to cut back on the service again.
