I have previously written about our grant scheme called “Community Cashback” which involves putting the money we have obtained through the Proceeds of Crime Act (POCA) back into the Sussex communities.
A few months ago Chris Neilson and myself went and visited some of the local charity and community groups who had received money through our Community Cashback scheme. We wanted to hear what they had been doing with the money and we were not disappointed.
Watch the YouTube clip as we talk to some amazing people doing such important, valuable and fantastic work across Sussex.
This is money seized from the criminals now making such a positive difference across our communities.
I now fancy myself as a roving reporter!!!
Thank you to those who took the time to speak to us, I personally found it a humbling experience listening to all the dedicated people involved.
Thank you to the Sussex Community Foundation for working with us to form such a successful partnership.
Another week and a new Chief Constable, well not that new!!
T/ Chief Constable Giles York is now at our helm. A strong leader with strong values and direction and he loves innovation and cycling! He also embraces social media and is joining us as a new Sussex Police People blogger!
