GREATER Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA) has launched a public consultation on the next Greater Manchester Police and Crime Plan, which will set the direction for policing and community safety across the city-region for the next three years.
The public consultation began yesterday (Monday 1 November) and will run for four weeks until Tuesday 30 November. Responses to the consultation will be collated and feed into the final version of the next Plan, which will be published in January 2022.
Greater Manchester’s Police and Crime Plan describes how the Mayor of Greater Manchester will work with the police and partners to achieve its priorities.
Over summer 2021, pre-consultation engagement was carried out with the city-region’s 10 Community Safety Partnerships (CSPs), Greater Manchester Police (GMP), young people, businesses, communities, health organisations and VCSE organisations ahead of refreshing the Plan.
This engagement led to the following three priorities:
- Keeping People Safe and Supporting Victims
- Reducing Harm and Offending
- Strengthening Communities and Places
The four-week public consultation is now live on GM Consult (link opens in a new window) and residents of Greater Manchester are asked to read through each of the three priorities before sharing their views on what is important to keep them and their communities safe.
