Lancashire Partnership Against Crime (LANPAC) is a unique collaboration between Lancashire Constabulary, Lancashire Businesses and Public Services working together to reduce levels of crime and disorder across the county. The Partnership is a registered charity and a company limited by guarantee and its primary role is to support various crime prevention and community safety schemes throughout Lancashire submitted by the local police on behalf of the community. A Board of Directors drawn from our partners in the public, private and voluntary sectors allocate grants to enable police officers around the county to operate local crime reduction initiatives that would not otherwise have been affordable.
On average, our work allows one new crime reduction project to begin almost every week – protecting the vulnerable elderly, tackling crime, drug abuse, street robbery and burglary, making people feel safer on the streets and in their homes, as well as providing a wide range of educational services and recreational opportunities to help our young people lead safe, productive lives. Often, when time is pressing, we are able to assess the application and allocate funds immediately, resulting in an immediate impact on the particular problem.
