As part of the Government's new Safer Streets Fund, West Mercia Police will receive £432,000 of funding, in addition to £233,630 committed by the local Police & Crime Commissioner, John Campion.
The Safer Streets fund, which was launched last year, is designed to reduce neighbourhood crimes including burglary, robbery and theft by funding preventative crime measures such as improved lighting, security and CCTV.
Across West Mercia, the Fund will finance a variety of crime prevention measures including target hardening measures for 100 vulnerable homes, 16 new cameras with varying capabilities and two alley gates.
