The Kent Police Property Fund is generated from the sale, at auction, of items seized in police operations.
If you are a local, charitable organisation with a clear connection to Kent, you're welcome to apply.
Before you apply
Before applying, please consider the following criteria.
The projects supported by Police Property Act Fund donations must be for charitable purposes and must benefit the residents of Kent. The aims of a project must include one or more of the following.
1. To support people who are or have been
victims of crime
vulnerable to crime.
2. To improve the quality of life for residents by initiatives which prevent crime or reduce the fear of crime
divert people, especially young people, away from crime

3. To promote greater co-operation between the police and local communities by
encouraging the development of a positive relationship between members of local communities and the police, especially those sections of the community which are currently under-represented in the police service
