Sheffield-based crime charity awarded cash grant

Have your say

A Sheffield-based crime prevention charity has been awarded a £49,000 grant to help police forces tackle business crime.

People United Against Crime, which operates the Business Crime Reduction Centre in Sheffield, received the cash from the College of Policing.

The charity, which works throughout the Yorkshire and Humber region to reduce crime, will use the grant as a first step towards a national roll out of its business crime reduction techniques.

Some of the cash will be used to develop training materials for officers.

People United Against Crime chief executive, David Ransom, said: “We are delighted to receive this funding – it provides us with the opportunity to mainstream the model of business crime reduction that PUAC has developed through its Business Crime Reduction Centre.

“As the only charity to be selected, we are pleased to represent the voluntary sector and thrilled to work with the University of Huddersfield and the Yorkshire and Humber police forces.”
