Funding to support the reduction of collisions


To seek the approval for additional Constabulary resources to support the reduction of collisions on the county’s roads through effective and sustainable prevention and early intervention.

Decision Summary

Following approval by the Business Co-ordination Board (“BCB”) on 21st September 2016, the Cambridgeshire Police and Crime Commissioner agreed to the funding of £250k (including all on costs) as set out in the BCB paper for:

  • An additional dedicated uniformed Police Casualty Reduction Officer within the Roads Policing Unit for three years, and
  • A police staff co-ordinator post (full-time) to co-ordinate county-wide Volunteer Speedwatch schemes.

This is in line with the Commissioning Intentions that the funding for the Police Casualty Reduction Officer is drawn from the wider Casualty Reduction and Support Fund. It is proposed that the funding for the police staff co-ordinator will be provided from the Collaboration and Commissioning Reserve for an initial period of three years.
