£100,000 offered to Nottinghamshire organisations who can help fight rural crime
Date of alert:
Thursday, 26 January 2023
Victims of rural crime in Nottinghamshire will receive even more support after a £100,000 grant scheme was launched today (Thursday 26 January).
Charities and organisations are now being urged to bid for a share of the funding and show how they would use it to help make the county’s rural communities safer.
The funding is from Nottinghamshire Police and Crime Commissioner Caroline Henry’s Make Notts Safe Fund and is part of her commitment to “levelling up” the response to rural crime – which can have a significant impact on victims.
It follows the recent announcement that Commissioner Henry has also provided £200,000 for a project to provide free security equipment for victims of rural crime across Bassetlaw, Newark and Sherwood, including the creation of a new dedicated rural crime prevention officer role.
