Commissioner invests £3.6m into Community Safety Partnerships

The Police and Crime Commissioner for Humberside, Jonathan Evison, has announced new funding arrangements for local partnerships to improve community safety, cut crime and anti-social behaviour and support victims of crime.

Community Safety Partnerships (CSPs) exist in all four areas of the Humber region, North and North East Lincolnshire, the East Riding of Yorkshire and the City of Hull. They bring together local Councils, the Police, Fire & Rescue Service and other agencies, their task is to work together to reduce crime, disorder, substance misuse and reoffending.

Each CSP has provided a business case to the Commissioner to set out their priorities over the next three years, which reflect the aims of the Commissioner’s Police and Crime Plan. A total of £3.6m has been allocated until March 2025 to assist these plans and give partnerships more support for longer-term planning. Each partnership has been granting funding based on population, geographical size and recorded crime levels. In addition to the planned activities, the funding will contribute to their capacity to drive forward each local partnership and improve their capacity for data analysis, which will help them respond to emerging crime and community safety issues. CSPs will also have access to an annual Projects Fund to support them to tackle emerging issues and work on collaborative projects.

The proposed work to be carried out by the Community Safety Partnerships includes: *     


An ASB Victims Champion Service to provide support for vulnerable victims of anti-social behaviour

Training programs to prevent violence against women and girls

North East Lincolnshire

Support for high-risk victims of domestic abuse

North Lincolnshire

A monthly anti-social referral panel for victims and offenders 

Operation Fairway – A targeted enforcement initiative against rural crime

East Riding of Yorkshire

Diversionary activities for young people

Jonathan Evison said: “Partnership working is vital to achieve the aims of my Police and Crime Plan, reducing crime and anti-social behaviour and building safer communities can never be achieved by agencies working in isolation. Community Safety Partnerships bring together all organisations to find joint solutions and this three-year commitment will enable them to have more stability to establish programmes that will make a positive difference for all communities.”

Tracy Harsley, Chair of Hull CSP said: “Safer Hull welcomes the significant investment being made by the Police & Crime Commissioner.  The relationship goes beyond funding and we will continue to work with the PCC’s team to deliver our own Community Safety Strategy that is fully integrated into the Commissioners own Police and Crime Plan”

Chief Superintendent Matthew Peach, Chair of North and North East Lincolnshire CSPs said: “As a partnership we are grateful for the PCC giving the CSP the three-year commitment to ensure we take robust action to tackle crime and disorder and ensure the area remains a safe place to live, work and visit.  The partnership is very active and this funding will allow for great initiatives to reduce crime and the fear of crime in this area.”

Chief Superintendent Christine Wilson, Chair of East Riding of Yorkshire CSP said: "The Police and Crime Commissioner’s funding is evidence of the continuation of investment into supporting multi-agency approaches to crime-reduction and community safety initiatives across the East Riding of Yorkshire and the Humber. The fund will underpin new and creative initiatives that support tackling crime together as responsible partners. The Community Safety Partnership support fund will allow the East Riding to continue to be in a positive position to tackle future challenges at a local level and ensure the East Riding remains a safe place to live and work."
