Major cash boost for safer Cardiff streets

A joint bid to secure funding for measures that will help make Cardiff streets safer places has been successful.

The Cardiff Community Safety Partnership, which comprises of organisations including Cardiff Council, South Wales Police, the Police and Crime Commissioner and other key statutory and third sector partners, has been awarded £432,000 from the Home Office's Safer Streets fund, part of an £18.4m funding announcement for schemes across Wales and England that seek to crack down on neighbourhood crimes like burglary, vehicle theft and robbery.

The money will be spent in Cardiff to deliver a number of new measures including additional CCTV, better lighting and physical safety improvements in the Grangetown and Butetown areas, mobile CCTV to respond to incidents and issues across the city when needed and an enhanced crime prevention service for repeat victims, such as provision of doorbell monitoring, security improvements, property marking and educational workshops.

The cash boost will also fund new approaches to identifying ASB hotspots to inform crime prevention and a new crime response / prevention command vehicle, providing a base to provide community reassurance and crime prevention advice.

A dedicated Crimestoppers initiative will also be implemented in areas where communities have raised concerns to the Council about the high levels of incidents and anti-social behaviour.

Cabinet Member for Housing and Communities, Cllr Lynda Thorne, said: "I'm really pleased that Cardiff's bid to the Home Office has been successful as this has been a great example of partnership working between the Council, South Wales Police and the Police and Crime Commissioner on measures that will help communities to be safer and feel safer. This additional resource will enhance our joint working further to make Cardiff a safer place.

"The Home Office funding will enable us to not only tackle cases of acquisitive crime in particular hot spots in the city, they will help prevent them in the first instance and give reassurance to residents that their safety is our priority.

"We've also worked closely with residents in Butetown and Grangetown, listening to their concerns about community safety in their local areas, to develop this bid. Measures such as increased CCTV, better lighting, smart technologies and getting the communities themselves involved in crime-stopping campaigns will help us make a real difference in preventing acquisitive crimes and other offences from blighting these areas and our residents.

"Furthermore, with our partners we are committed to the long-term implementation and maintenance of these measures for the benefit of our communities for years to come."
