The commitment made to sustain the London Crime Prevention Fund (LCPF) budget has been maintained. The total funding allocation for all elements of the LCPF for the four years 2017/18 to 2020/21 is £72,285,000.

Direct funding to boroughs is provided to address local need and demand, and delivery decisions are driven by local priorities. There is significant investment into Integrated Offender Management (IOM), tackling gang crime, managing substance misuse and interventions for young people, among others, but as each is tailored to a local area the outcome measures are individual. A full list of current projects by borough has been included and published on the MOPAC website.
