Cumbrian councils offered £100,000 to tackle anti-social behaviour

CUMBRIA’S crime commissioner has offered £100,000 to councils to try and persuade them to work with him to target anti-social behaviour.

Richard Rhodes has written to six district leaders to offer the one-off sum to be matched funded by their councils.

Mr Rhodes is also proposing to provide funding to the Community Safety Partnerships to allow them to continue operating for the next 12 months.

He said: “Anti-social behaviour makes people’s lives a misery.

“Whilst out with operational policing officers I have witnessed first-hand the impact of anti-social behaviour and how often the solutions need to be provided consistently at a local level together with partners.

“I have asked the leaders of the district councils to consider their CCTV provision alongside other tools to tackle anti-social behaviour.

“There is already lots of good work going on to tackle anti-social behaviour and I hope that this one-off funding will reduce the impact of anti-social behaviour.”

The district councils need to submit a business case outlining how the money they have been offered could be used to the benefit of local communities by March 11.
