The Government recognises that improved street lighting and CCTV can make a real difference in cutting crime and helping to deliver the safer streets the public wants.

That is why we established the Safer Streets Fund (SSF) to support local initiatives designed to reduce crime in areas disproportionately and persistently impacted and prevent it from happening in the first place. We have run three rounds of the SSF, investing £70 million across England and Wales, and have announced there will be £50 million of Government funding for the SSF for each of the next three years.
