GMP and Policing


The Future of Policing: Greater Manchester is an amazing place and I am proud to be the Chief Constable of GMP. We are facing some challenging times and we have a huge amount of change taking place so that we can provide the best possible service to the public. We call the changes our Target Operating Model and it is transforming policing in Greater Manchester.  At the heart of it is our focus on strong neighbourhood policing and closer working with local agencies such as local councils and health services. This work is well underway and will continue into 2022.  I need your help to keep the communities in Greater Manchester safe and protect vulnerable people. Read on to find out what we’re doing, but also what we’re asking our citizens to do to help keep Greater Manchester safe.                                                                                                                                                      

Ian Hopkins Chief Constable: Our Target Operating Model                                                   There are five parts to the future plan for policing in Greater Manchester. Each of the parts have a significant amount of work taking place that will come together to ensure the best possible service. The five elements are:        

Place based - police officers and staff working alongside other agencies in localities

Threat, harm and risk - providing priority support to those most at risk of harm.

Citizens' contract - encouraging people to work with us as part of a contract to improve communities                            

Workforce - supporting our workforce to change how we work.                                

Information and technology - making best use of both information and new technology.
