A Safer Keyham

In December 2021 it was announced that £800,000 of Home Office funding had been granted to Keyham, Ford and the surrounding areas to pay for a programme of community engagement and crime prevention which aims to reassure residents that their neighbourhoods are safe places to live, work and play.

The Home Office funding had been split into two grants:

  • A Safer Keyham grant of £308,000 for crime prevention measures such as better home security, improved CCTV and lighting upgrades, environmental improvements, community training, youth engagement and projects to improve the community.
  • A Keyham Community Policing fund of £514,000 to provide community reassurance and pay for a dedicated community team of police officers for the area as well as funding problem solving activity and youth engagement support.

This funding programme has only recently started and residents will see the full results over the next few weeks and months. 

You can get involved by having your say on planned designs for green spaces in the area.
