Commissioner announces £1.39m in Hotspot Funding for Serious Violence and Anti-Social Behaviour    

Humberside Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC), Jonathan Evison is pleased to announce a significant investment of £1.39 million from the Home Office in hotspot funding to address serious violence and anti-social behaviour (ASB) in the region. This funding will support targeted initiatives aimed at reducing crime and improving community safety.

The funding will be used to implement a range of measures, including increased police presence in hotspot areas and enhanced partnership working with local authorities and community organisations.  

In addition to the hotspot funding, the Commissioner is also announcing plans for an immediate justice solution that will be developed in collaboration with local partners. This innovative approach will streamline the criminal justice process, enabling quicker and more efficient outcomes for victims and offenders alike. The solution is set to be implemented in Autumn 2024 and is expected to significantly improve the overall effectiveness of the justice system in the Humber region.

PCC Jonathan Evison commented, "I am committed to tackling serious violence and ASB in our communities, and this funding will enable us to take proactive steps to address these issues head-on. By investing in targeted initiatives and developing new solutions, we can make a real difference in improving the safety and well-being of our residents."

The Commissioner would like to thank all partners and stakeholders for their ongoing support in working together to create safer communities for all.  The PCC is hosting an anti-social behaviour summit in the region scheduled for the 5th March which will take steps to address how anti-social behaviour can be tackled.  Free places for those working in tackling ASB are still available.
