Bedfordshire’s PCC marks International Youth Day

Bedfordshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner, Kathryn Holloway, has marked International Youth Day (12 August 2020) by involving young people across the county to have their say on policing.

Bedfordshire PCC wins £3m in second Special Grant

Bedfordshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner, Kathryn Holloway, has won a second unique Special Grant from the Home Office to fight gang, gun and knife crime and fill a hole in the cash-strapped force’s finances.

Commissioner Holloway persuaded the Government that the rules for Special Grants in policing needed to be changed. The previous criteria meant that grants only covered spending in the service that lay outside ‘business as usual’ on a single day.

From this change, PCC Holloway received her first Special Grant last year of £4.571m. This was to cover the unprecedented costs of fighting gang, gun and knife crime in the county over a three year period. She has now been awarded a further £3m for the Force to also assist with these costs in 2020-21.

The PCC said: “I think it’s always a good idea to quit while you’re ahead and I’m more proud of what’s been achieved on behalf on Bedfordshire Police, which deserved someone to fight its corner and to do so with the gloves off, than of anything I’ve ever done in the workplace in 37 years.”
