Durham PCC secures Ministry of Justice funding


Durham Police & Crime Commissioner secures Ministry of Justice funding

Ron Hogg, Durham Police and Crime Commissioner, has secured funding worth £142,000 for four projects.  The four projects are:

  1. Working with people with mental health problems.
  2. Working with victims of domestic violence.
  3. Creating a video link between the force and court rooms.
  4. Establishing a victim interview room in Bishop Auckland Hospital.

Mr Hogg said: “I am pleased to have received funding for these four worthwhile projects as they directly support my policing objectives.  I thought very carefully about which projects I felt we should seek funding for given the various demands placed upon policing.  This funding will directly help individuals to cope with either being a victim of crime or improve their quality of life.  The funding needs to be spent by March 2015 so residents of County Durham and Darlington will benefit from these improvements in the very near future”.

A spokesperson for the force said: “This grant award is part of a government funding plan to improve services to victims of crime and vulnerable people.  A lot of effort went into the submission of these bids as it was part of a competitive process amongst all police forces”.
