APCC responds to Violence Reduction Unit funding


Responding to the Government’s announcement that eighteen Police and Crime Commissioners (PCCs) will receive funding for Violence Reduction Units, APCC Serious Violence Lead, Mark Burns-Williamson PCC OBE said:

“This funding is very welcome as it will enable Police and Crime Commissioners to continue to develop and fund their Violence Reduction Units in the short term. PCCs are investing in preventative and early intervention initiatives around the country and are working to deliver a whole-system approach to tackling serious violence.

“We will continue to work with the Home Office and our partners to ensure longer-term investment over the period of the next spending review for all police force and PCC areas to deal with the scourge of serious violence in helping to keep our communities safe.”
