Ynys Môn MP Virginia Crosbie is supporting an application for £550,000 of UK Government cash to tackle crime in Holyhead town centre.
The money from the Safer Streets Fund will help North Wales Police combat anti-social behaviour, theft, and violence and public order offences in the town.
Virginia recently met with the policing team for the area headed by Inspector Rob Rands to discuss the bid and some of the issues it faces.
“Holyhead town has been long neglected with little investment in the last ten years so crime has risen and research also showed that women do not feel safe there,” said Virginia.
“All this is unacceptable and so I welcome the North Wales Police and Crime Commissioner bidding for this money which will help tackle head-on these crimes that affect communities so much.
“I fully support the application and I will be making my own representations to ministers to try and make sure the cash is received. The area has not applied to the Safer Streets Fund before, so I am sure it will be taken seriously.
“I would also like to thank Rob and his team for all they are doing. It was important for me to meet up with them and be briefed on the situation and the good work they are already doing to prevent crime and reassure the community.”
