More than £40,000 could be spent in Dundee to help reduce crime, reoffending and the risk of fires if councillors back spending proposals.

Money for victim support, the Safe Zone bus, security measures for vulnerable residents and fire prevention activities could all be part of a raft of spending to help people feel more safe and secure.

Alan Ross convener of Dundee City Council’s community safety and public protection said: “This money will make a real difference in making Dundee a safer place.
“We are committed to reducing levels of crime, domestic abuse, drug abuse, re-offending, road safety and anti-social behaviour.

“This money could make a huge impact in helping some of the most vulnerable people in Dundee, by offering victim support of making homes safer.”

The money will allow partners to ensure that there is a strategic response to the Community Safety priority areas of work as identified within the City Plan.

Councillors will be asked to agree to this spending allocation at the Community Safety and Public Protection Committee on Monday (August 20).
