The Property Fund is currently closed.

The Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner has power to distribute funds accumulated in the Police Property Fund as a result of the disposal of property coming into the possession of the police by the Police (Property) Act 1997 and The Powers of Criminal Courts Act 1973.

The aim of the fund is to enable local organisations and community groups to access up to the value of £2,500. These grants must link in with one or more of the objectives in the Police, Fire and Crime Plan and aim to reduce crime and disorder.
