Community Safety Boost

ALMOST a dozen small grants to boost personal and community safety at the grass roots level could be handed out by councillors next week.

A total of Β£38,000 has been earmarked by the Dundee Community Safety Partnership to support seven key priorities including crime reduction, reduced levels of domestic abuse and less anti-social behaviour.

Kevin Cordell convener of Dundee City Council’s community safety and public protection committee said: β€œThe relatively small amounts of money that each of these projects receives has a disproportionately positive effect on the individuals and communities it helps.

β€œThe Community Safety Partnership commissioning budget does excellent work and ensures that all of the partners who receive funds submit a report describing exactly how they helped to meet the key priorities.”

Among this year’s allocation is Β£5000 to keep the Safe Zone Bus on the road throughout the year, Β£3000 for provision of security measures for vulnerable residents and Β£1,884 to distribute alarms to victims of domestic abuse.

The community safety and public protection committee meets on Monday (August 19).
