Police and Crime Plan

The Police and Crime Plan was produced in partnership with a wide range of people and organisations across Greater Manchester, the plan is aimed at everyone with a stake in community safety – not only the police, but also the criminal justice system, the health services local councils, voluntary groups and local people.

The three-year strategy focuses on three main priorities:

  • To keep people safe - for those who live, work, socialise and travel in Greater Manchester, as well as protecting those who are vulnerable.
  • To reduce harm and offending – preventing anti-social and criminal behavior by intervening earlier and rehabilitating offenders.
  • To strengthen communities and places – by helping to build resilient communities and strengthening the delivery of public assets.

The plan’s publication follows an extensive consultation and engagement process with the people who use the services, as well as the wide variety of people in different organisations who provide them. This includes police, local authorities, community safety partners, health services and voluntary and community groups.

More than 3,500 people responded during the consultation process – with 80% saying the priorities set the right tone for the coming years. You can read more about the plan here.
