HEFCE closed at the end of March 2018. The information on this website is historical and is no longer maintained.
The HEFCE domain - www.hefce.ac.uk - will continue to function until September 2018. At this point we will close the site entirely and all its information will only be available from the National Web Archive.
The fund is a joint initiative between HEFCE and the College of Policing. It will support education and research collaborations between police forces and academic institutions with the aim of developing new and innovative ways of policing, and more effective responses to crime.
