The Greater Manchester Police Neighbourhood Policing Consultation events have reached the half-way stage.
The events, which started on 21 February 2022, are open to the public and offer an opportunity for local residents to speak directly to a member of GMP’s Chief Officer Team and offer their feedback on neighbourhood policing.
All feedback given during the meetings will be used to help inform the neighbourhood policing plan, and some of the key issues raised so far include police visibility, stop & search, anti-social behaviour and youth violence.
Each policing district of Greater Manchester will have their own public event which means there will be 12 in total. The first six events have already taken place in Trafford, Wigan, Oldham, Rochdale and the City of Manchester’s North and South districts.
The final six events will take place 7pm – 9pm and are scheduled for:
- Stockport (24 March) – Edgeley Park, Stockport County FC, Hardcastle Road, SK3 9DD
- Bury (28 March) – Castle Leisure Centre, Bolton Street, BL9 0EZ
- Salford (5 April) – Mary Seacole Building, University of Salford, Frederick Road Campus, M6 6PU
- Tameside (14 April) – Jubilee Hall, Dukinfield Town Hall, King Street, SK16 4LA
- Bolton (19 April) – Social Learning Zone, University of Bolton, University Way, BL3 5AB
- City of Manchester Central (25 April) – Powerhouse, 140 Raby Street, Moss Side, M14 4SL
The online survey remains live and we’re continuing to encourage the public to take part and grab the opportunity to have their say. The questionnaire will only take around ten minutes to complete and can be accessed here.
Assistant Chief Constable Scott Green, who is overseeing the consultation as GMP’s neighbourhood policing lead, said: “We’ve now reached the half-way stage in our schedule of public events for the Neighbourhood Policing Consultation, and it’s been a very positive response from local residents so far.
“The events have been well attended and given us an opportunity to hear directly from our communities about what they want to see from their local police. It’s important to us that we have these conversations now so that they can influence our neighbourhood policing plan and people can see their feedback being put into action.
“I would encourage residents in the remaining districts to attend their local events, as well as urge everyone across Greater Manchester to take the opportunity to make your voice heard and complete the online survey.”
