Beverley To Get More Funding To Help Fight Increase In Crime

Beverley is set to get an additional £91K to help tackle the growing crime problem specifically in the Area.

Funds are a result of another bid to the Home Office’s Safer Streets Fund that has been successful by the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Humberside, North East Lincolnshire Council, and East Riding of Yorkshire Council.

A total of £841,000 will be invested in our region to increase resident safety and tackle serious acquisitive crime.

By implementing innovative and traditional prevention measures, such as CCTV, improved street lighting, and creative interventions, the funding will improve public safety for all. While Police also want to create interventions to tackle crime and divert people into more positive behaviour.

Police and Crime Commissioner Jonathan Evison said:

“I am delighted my office has worked in partnership with both Councils to secure this funding which I hope will be of great benefit to residents. It will deliver initiatives that will prevent and reduce crimes and anti-social behaviour, improving the security of the community and making a sustainable change for everyone living and working there.”

An East Riding of Yorkshire Council spokesperson said:

“Partners including the Police, Council, residents and voluntary sector organisations like the Cherry Tree centre and ERVAS have been working collaboratively over the past year to support other residents, young people and local services to overcome difficulties around anti-social behaviour and other ongoing issues in the vicinity of the Flemingate and Grovehill areas of Beverley.”

“To support this ongoing work the East Riding Community Safety Partnership has secured Safer Streets funding that will aim to support the Beverley Youth Partnership to continue their work around delivering a variety of inclusive and participatory activities and events for young people in the area over the coming two years.”

“We hope that by working together to develop a bespoke approach to the area a similar model can be used to support partners in our other communities across the East Riding.”
