Police & Crime Commissioner’s Property Fund


The Property Fund remains closed at this time and until further notice due to the current Coronavirus situation. We do appreciate all the great work that many of the community groups and organisations do in support of the Commissioners Police and Crime Plan and are looking forward to hearing about them and new applications when it re-opens.


The Police 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 1897 and The Powers of Criminal Courts Act 1973.

The Commissioner considers all applications on a quarterly basis.  The fund is now temporarily closed due to the impact of the Coronavirus on the many groups and activities we consider supporting.

Police & Crime Plan

Anyone who is interested in applying for funding, or feel they are part of an organisation who may benefit from an award under this scheme by the Commissioner, should contact either a member of their local Community Policing Team, a Police Community Support Officer (PCSO) or a member of Police staff for an application form. The application is then submitted to the Office of the Police & Crime Commissioner and will then be passed for consideration by the Police & Crime Commissioner.

Please note the Property Fund will not support:

  • Commercially run activities
  • Speed Laser Devices and Speed Activation Devices
  • Projects run for the sole benefit of one individual
  • Politically based activities
  • Events or activities for which the principle aim is to fundraise for other organisations
  • Marketing costs for existing or planned activities
  • The development or refurbishment of buildings
  • Activities which form a statutory function of an applicant
  • CCTV

Privacy Notice and Consent:

The information you submit on the application will be held by the Cumbria Office of Police and Crime Commissioner and will contribute directly to the decision that is made regarding allocations of funding and for our own research purposes. In addition your application form may be shared with third parties and partner agencies who may be involved in the decision making process. We may be required to disclose information outside of the Cumbria Office of Police and Crime Commissioner to help prevent fraud, or if required by law.

Full grant applications will be retained for a maximum of 6 years (plus current year). Information will be retained on a database at the Cumbria Office of Police and Crime Commissioner for statistical and monitoring purposes.

If your application is successful, details of grants will be published on the Cumbria Office of Police and Crime Commissioner website. No personal information will be published
