Commissioned Services

What is Commissioning?

The Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) awards funding to organisations in the county who contribute to the delivery of the objectives set out in the Police and Crime Plan.

The Police and Reform and Social Responsibility Act gives PCCs the power to award ‘Crime and Disorder Reduction’ grants with any conditions.

The Police and Crime Commissioner for Bedfordshire has two funding streams from which awards can be made which contribute to the delivery of the objectives within the Police and Crime Plan.

Ministry of Justice (MoJ) Funding

Police and Crime Commissioners were given responsibility for commissioning support services for victims of crime in 2014 along with an annual grant from the Ministry of Justice. An amendment to section 56 of the Domestic Violence, Crime and Victims Act 2004 and the Anti-Social Behaviour Crime and Policing Act 2014 allows for this.

Ministry of Justice Funding is specifically used in the specialist support of victims of domestic abuse and sexual violence, counselling services and support of victims of all other crime types. Services commissioned under the Ministry of Justice funding stream must be accessible to all victims of crime regardless of whether the crime has been reported to the police or how long ago the crime was have been committed.

Community Safety Fund (CSF)

The PCC’s Community Safety Fund is utilised to support services in the following areas:

  • Mental Health
  • Volunteers
  • Adult Offender Management
  • Youth Offender Management
  • Domestic Abuse Offender Focus
  • Early Intervention
  • Police and Crime Plan Delivery


Once funds have been allocated, the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner monitor commissioned services monthly, quarterly or annually depending on the amount of funding awarded.
