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

Strategic policing requirement

One element of the commissioner’s role involves reviewing how Greater Manchester Police is ensuring that the force can meet the Strategic Policing Requirement which covers such issues as cyber-crime, terrorism and organised criminality.

Greater Manchester Police Chief Constable Ian Hopkins said:

While I am pleased to assure you that GMP has maintained sufficient capacity and capabilities to meet SPR at this point, it is important that you continue to work with your fellow police and crime commissioners and the Home Office to mitigate the risks to force resources and to the mutual resources of the police service. I will support you in that endeavour.
