Supported by the Police and Crime Steering Group, the Police, Fire and Crime Panel is responsible for holding the Deputy Mayor for Policing, Crime, Criminal Justice and Fire to account on policing issues. Made up of ten appointed councillors from each of the Greater Manchester local authority areas, and two independent members, the panel is consulted on regarding precept proposals and the police and crime plan, the fire plan and the proposed allocation of budget for fire and rescue functions.

The panel is currently chaired by Councillor Nigel Murphy from Manchester City Council.
