The PCC has received additional income of £41,000 from Local Authorities and external organisations.
The income came from additional policing at:
1. Operation Stay Safe. Police officers worked alongside a multi-agency team to identify and protect vulnerable children and young people at night through assertive outreach activities. Middlesbrough Council agreed funding £12,100.
2. St Paul’s Mutual Aid Society. Community Partnership arrangement for the provision of police presence to support St Paul’s Mutual Aid who provide a savings and low rate loan service to members of the community who are unemployed or low earners. The police presence offers crime prevention as large sums of cash are involved and also police officers engage with the members who would not normally approach the police. Agreed funding of £9,000.
3. Stockton International Riverside Festival (SIRF), National Cycling event & Fireworks display – Additional policing provided in agreement with Stockton Borough Council for the provision of additional police support at their Riverside Festival and Fireworks display on 5th November 2017 both in and around the town centre. Agreed funding with Stockton Borough Council of £13,100.
4. Redcar Races – Additional policing provided for specific race meetings. Expected recharge during 2017/18 of £5,500.
5. Billingham Carnival – Carnival organisers agree to contribute £1,000 for the provision of additional police presence.
By providing £21k of this income to the Chief Constable this will ensure that the Policing of these community events and operations does not come at the expense of core policing.
The provision of this additional funding supports the PCC’s objective of Working Together to Make Cleveland Safer
