More than half a million pounds have been funded to fight Crime across Hampshire.
The Hampshire Police and Crime Commissioner is due to receive £600,030.

It is also intended for projects to change attitudes and behavior in local communities.

“But it is much more than just environmental change – we need to stop people from committing these crimes because we make it back safe.
