The London Crime Prevention Fund map to help police stop stabbings in Britain

The interactive map backed by The London Crime Prevention Fund (LCPF) outlines the crime priorities and provides information on each of the funded services in each borough.

The new map outlines comes as one part of the The London Crime Prevention Fund (LCPF)’s new approach. As stated on their website ‘A new approach to the LCPF has been introduced that safeguards and protects local community safety and preventative services while also enabling us to collectively achieve more through co-commissioning than would otherwise have been possible under the previous model.’

The interactive map outlines the crime priorities they are tackling through direct borough funding and provides information on each of the services they are funding in each borough for financial years 2017/18 and 2018/19..

In 2011 online crime maps for England and Wales were launched, allowing users to see which offences have been reported in their local streets. Click here to search your postcode.

Then in 2012 – The Home Office widened the ‘Compare Your Area tool’ to allow people to compare crime levels for a certain borough or district.

The ‘new’ interactive map outlines the crime priorities the Home Office are tackling through direct borough funding. The map provides information on each of the services and details the funding each borough.

The Home Secretary said that the Met had “the resources it needs” and that it was “typical” and wrong of her political opponents to have only “one response” when the key was to find new ways of persuading young people not to pick up knives in the first place.

Ms Rudd’s comments came as the latest phase of the Met’s Operation Sceptre, which seeks to combat knife crime, ended with the seizure of more than 250 blades and a similar number of arrests.

What is the London Crime Prevention Fund?

MOPAC launched the London Crime Prevention Fund Co-commissioning fund.

This is a new fund of £14.5m that will run for three years from 2018 – 2021, and aims to bring partners together to co-design, co-commission and co-deliver community safety projects regionally or across multiple boroughs. The funding will be released in two tranches in 2018.

Following some development workshops held with Local Authority partners recently, MOPAC will be releasing a funding prospectus shortly, which sets out the process, timescales and background to this programme.

The funding prospectus will invite expressions of interest (EOIs) for Tranche 1, which is focused on four crime and community safety priority areas for London: youth offending, child sexual exploitation, sexual violence and female offending. The deadline for submission of EOIs is 14th August.

Here is an example:
