This is the second year that Jane Kennedy has opened the fund which is used to help charities, community groups and social enterprises stop problems before they occur, by reducing the opportunities for crime and by deterring people away from becoming involved in anti-social and criminal behaviour.
A total of £150,000 is available from the fund and the Commissioner is inviting groups to submit bids of between £5,000 and £25,000 for innovative community safety projects or schemes that will be run during 2016/17.
Jane said: “Merseyside is fortunate in having a wealth of voluntary and community groups which are working hard to prevent and tackle anti-social behaviour and crime and make our region an even better place to live.
“Through the Crime Prevention Fund my aim is to give these organisations a valuable cash boost which will make a difference to communities in Merseyside, helping people to feel safer in their homes while also preventing crime and anti-social behaviour.”
The closing date for applications is 5pm on Friday 4 March 2016.
