Greater Manchester no longer has a Police and Crime Commissioner. The Mayor of Greater Manchester has now taken responsibility for policing and crime.

Equality at Greater Manchester Police

Reports to the commissioner

Reports on GMP’s equalities and human rights work are sent to the commissioner regularly throughout the year, for review at his general meetings. These reports are available for you to download.

Stop and search

Greater Manchester Police (GMP) has to monitor stop and search data and demographics for any disproportionate impact on minority communities.  

It is also the role of the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner to scrutinise this data to ensure that stop and search is being used fairly within the communities of Greater Manchester.

Hate crime

The six hate crime motivations of alternative sub-culture, disability, race, religion, sexual orientation and transgender covers some of the protected characteristic groups under the Equality Act 2010.

The targeting of an individual group due to their actual (or perceived) alternative sub-culture, disability, race, religion, sexual orientation, or transgender identity is incorporated into GMP’s hate crime policy.

  • Find out more about hate crime on the Greater Manchester Police website. 
  • You can also view their equality publications to find their data on hate crime incidents.

Did you know that you can also report hate crime using a third party reporting centre? These are independent, non-police centres that allow you to report incidents in complete confidence. If you’d rather not talk to anyone you can use a ‘self-reporting’ pack. 

On each of Greater Manchester Police’s neighbourhood policing web pages, you can find a tab with ‘hate crime reporting centres’ on it. This gives you local information about where you can report hate crime in your local area without speaking directly to the police.

To report hate crime, you can: 

  • Call Greater Manchester Police on 101 (but if it’s an emergency, dial 999)
  • Use the True Vision – stop hate crime website
  • Visit your nearest police enquiry counter at a police station
  • Call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111
  • Use a third party reporting centre – see the download on this page to find your nearest

To find out more about third-party hate crime reporting centres, or how to become one, contact your local GMP partnership team.

Human rights

The Police and Crime Commissioner has a duty to make sure that Greater Manchester Police complies with the Human Rights Act, 1998.
