Have your say on the GM Police and Crime Plan

There is still time to have your say about a new plan aimed at tackling crime, supporting victims and building stronger, safer and more cohesive communities in Greater Manchester.

The new plan called ‘Standing Together’ will set the strategic direction for Greater Manchester Police, criminal justice and community safety partners in local areas for the next three years, with key issues prioritised by all those who work to make our communities safer.

The plan being proposed by the Mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham, and Deputy Mayor for Policing and Crime, Beverley Hughes, sets three main priorities:

  • to keep people safe
  • to reduce harm and offending
  • to strengthen communities and places

To give your views on what should be included in the Police and Crime Plan, complete the short survey which can be accessed via www.policesurvey.co.uk. The deadline to do this is Sunday, January 14, 2018.

The final plan will be presented to the Police and Crime Panel later in January.

Councillor Alex Ganotis, Leader of Stockport Council, said: “Public safety is a priority for Greater Manchester, so I’d encourage Stockport residents to give their opinions on how we can build safer, stronger and more resilient communities across the city region.”
