Seized cash to be used to fight crime

TENS of thousands of pounds seized from crooks will be used to fight crime and help communities in South Yorkshire.

Recent government figures revealed that South Yorkshire Police will receive just over £437,077 as a result of work carried out under the Proceeds of Crime Act between April and December 2009.

The total is the third highest in England and Wales, surpassed only by two much larger forces—the Metropolitan Police Service and West Yorkshire Police.

The money will be used to fund further proceeds of crime work, as well as being ploughed back into communities through grants for organisations and projects.
