APCC response to serious violence funding allocation announcement


APCC Chair and Serious Violence Lead, Mark Burns-Williamson PCC said:

“Whilst the further funding allocations today are welcome, it is ultimately through early intervention and prevention work that we can most effectively tackle knife crime and serious violence.


“Around a third of the Serious Violence Fund is for Violence Reduction Units, and other preventative initiatives, and we want this distributed at the earliest opportunity. We continue to work with the Home Office and Chief Constables to help coordinate how it is to be spent productively.”
