Why was it introduced?

Hull CSP Chair Tracy Harsley said: “We want to work more closely with communities and to support them in seeking to improve outcomes for residents and communities that will build resilience and reduce crime, disorder and anti-social behaviour.”

PCC for Humberside, Keith Hunter, said: “One of the key aims of my police and crime plan is to deliver increasingly self-sustaining and safe communities. I have funded the community safety partnership in Hull to ensure community groups have a local point of contact and I hope the fund will encourage a greater community involvement to tackle crime and safety.”
