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

Between 2011 and 2013 we carried out a major consultation project with over 1500 pupils from 10 schools across Greater Manchester – one from each of the local boroughs.

Using a mix of workshops, drama, and surveys, we assessed and recorded pupils’ attitudes towards policing and crime.

We looked at various topics including:

  • Policing priorities
  • Neighbourhood policing
  • Complaints against the police
  • Antisocial behaviour
  • Contacting the police

By working with the same group of children over a period of three years, we have been able to see how their opinions changed as they grew older.

The results are now in and we’ll be presenting our findings to Greater Manchester Police to help them strengthen their relationship with young people.

As well as the pupils that took part, we’re also inviting young people from across Greater Manchester to come and see what their peers thought.
