Commissioning and Grants

What is Commissioning?

Grant-BidThe Police and Crime Commissioner has commissioning powers and funding to help him to cut crime and improve community safety. He will commission services and award grants to organisations or bodies that he considers will support the community safety priorities in his Police and Crime Plan. He will work effectively with other local leaders in the area, who can also provide resources.

The Commissioner will also work to influence how all parties prioritise and bring together their resources to tackle local problems. He can pool funding with other local partners and have flexibility to decide how resources are used.

The Commissioner will look to develop solutions with partners on a range of crime and health issues including local authorities who will have responsibility for establishing Health and Wellbeing Boards. Joint efforts to tackle mental health, drugs and alcohol issues not only have immediate benefits for the health sector, they will have benefits for policing and community safety as the links between public health and crime are readily acknowledged.
