Each year the PCC awards a portion of his total commissioning budget to local councils' Community Safety Partnerships (CSPs) and other groups.

The OPCC remains in regular contact with these groups to ensure that this money - around £1,700,000 - is being spent effectively and on time, and delivering against the priorities in Safer in Kent: the Community Safety and Criminal Justice Plan.
