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.

She has now been awarded a further £3m for the Force to also assist with these costs in 2020-21.
