Making Greater Manchester a safer place
Our interim mayor Tony Lloyd is also our police and crime commissioner (PCC): an elected official who keeps the police service accountable to local people.
He sets the policing budget, and decides how much council tax payers should contribute to the service.
He brings public and voluntary organisations together to help reduce the demand on scarce resources.
The Police and Crime plan describes our priorities: tackling antisocial behaviour, supporting victims of crime, protecting vulnerable people, dealing with terrorism and organised crime, and maintaining public safety.
