"I am delighted to support the High Sheriff's and Merseyside Police Fund.
For many years, the fund has reached out to the vulnerable and strengthened their local communities. My officers, staff and cadets have worked hard to generate funding in the knowledge that it will be well received and used by those who need it most. I am proud of their contribution.
Our relationship with the High Sheriff is a strong one. We work well together on behalf of our communities and the fund gives us an excellent opportunity to support local projects and activities. I look forward to the many achievements that I know we will accomplish over the coming months and years."
"Over the last 13 years, the Merseyside Police and High Sheriff’s Charitable Fund has played an important role in funding initiatives that prevent crime and keep our communities safe.
The grants they have awarded have made a real difference to communities across Merseyside, particularly in relation to keeping our young people safe and diverting them away from trouble.
This is a truly worthwhile cause to which I wish continued success."
