The Home Office has today announced that Humberside Police will receive up to £390,000 of ‘Hotspot Policing’ funding to tackle violent crime.
Hotspot Policing uses data to identify specific locations where serious violence is most likely to occur and focusses police activity to carry out regular, visible patrols and problem solving in those hotspots.
The funding award begins immediately and runs under April 2022. An ongoing evaluation will take place to analyse the impact and measure any reduction in incidents of serious violence. The funding application was made by the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner on behalf of Humberside Police who will receive the funds to carry out the operational work required.
