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

Commissioner reveals police performance across Greater Manchester

Residents of each borough can see how their local police are performing thanks to a new-style performance report published by the Police and Crime Commissioner. 

Tony Lloyd has also published a report outlining his activities across Greater Manchester over the past year. 

The reports have been published as Tony marks a year since being elected Police and Crime Commissioner. 

The reports show how many incidents police deal with each day, how confident people are in local policing and how satisfied victims of crime are in the service they receive. They also highlight where crime has gone up and, importantly, what police are doing to target criminals and how they are working with councils and other agencies to make communities safer. 

Tony said: “It’s really important that local people can make a judgement on how police are performing in their area. 

“These reports gives a rounded view of how policing works in each borough of Greater Manchester. And it’s not about spin – it shows not just the things that are going well, but the areas of concern and, importantly, what police are doing about it. 

“Until now, local people have really only been able to rely on statistics, which as we all know don’t really give the full picture. Under the previous Police Authority regime GMP was weighed down with performance targets. Well, I’ve done away with those and instead Greater Manchester residents can get a more holistic view of how police are working to keep them safe.” 

Tony added that residents could also get a clear picture of what he has been doing since he’s been elected. 

“I represent everyone in Greater Manchester, but this report means that local people can see what I’ve been doing where they live, on their behalf,” he added.
