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

Salford residents’ chance to talk to Tony

Salford people have the chance to quiz Police and Crime Commissioner Tony Lloyd and Deputy Chief Constable Ian Hopkins in person on Tuesday 26 February 2013.

The second of a series of public meetings takes place at 2.30pm at Salford Civic Centre, Chorley Road, Swinton, M27 5DA.

Tony said: “If I’m not talking to the community then I’m not doing my job effectively. This meeting is your chance to meet me and the Chief Constable to share your views and help shape the future of policing in Greater Manchester.”

More than 100 people attended Tony’s first meeting in Trafford on Wednesday 30 January. Restorative justice, hate crime, and working more closely with the community were just some of the issues raised by local people.

Tony added: “To see so many people come along to the first meeting reflects how much local people do care about their communities and want their voices to be heard. As Police and Crime Commissioner I want to be a strong and effective voice for everyone in Greater Manchester so it’s important I hear the views of as many people as possible to find out how they want policing to work in the region.”

Meetings will be held monthly in each local authority area of Greater Manchester throughout 2013 so that every resident has the chance to meet Tony and Sir Peter and have a say in policing and crime issues.

If you can’t make it to the meeting you can follow online at gmpcc.org.uk/talktotony or on Twitter using the hashtag #talktotony.
