In April 2002, we introduced the Community Safety Partnership Award Programme which will provide local authority-led partnerships with £12 million over the next three years for crime prevention and community safety initiatives. The partnerships can use their allocations to fund crime prevention and community safety priorities as specified in their community safety strategies and action plans. We do not prescribe what those priorities, which have been identified through a local audit process, should be. It is for local authorities to determine priorities, and allocate resources accordingly. It is open to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender communities to be part of the local community safety partnership process.
