Casualty Reduction and Support Fund
August 27th, 2015
To create a Casualty Reduction and Support Fund (“the Fund”), from Cambridgeshire Constabulary’s (“the Constabulary”) underspend from the collaborated Bedfordshire Police, the Constabulary, and Hertfordshire Constabulary’s Camera, Ticket and Collision (CTC) underspend from 2014/15.
The Cambridgeshire Police and Crime Commissioner’s Business Coordination Board (BCB) at their meeting on the 27th August 2015 discussed the proposal based on the following and agreed to the funding as set out below and in the BCB paper.
The Fund was created in support of a range of activities such as Speedwatch, Road Victims Trust and initiatives to improve driver behaviour and prevention of collisions. The funding of these initiatives will come from the Fund.
The creation of the Fund will ensure that the funding of these casualty reduction and support activities is achieved from the most appropriate source. The Fund has been credited with the Constabulary’s CTC underspend of £515k in 2014/15.
