Safe and Strong Communities
Baroness Beverley Hughes is Greater Manchester’s Deputy Mayor for Policing, Crime, Criminal Justice and Fire. She is responsible for making the police and fire services accountable to local people and consulting with you on what your priorities are for community safety in Greater Manchester.
Working closely alongside the Mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham, the Deputy Mayor will also make decisions on how much of your council tax needs to go towards policing.
Baroness Hughes said:
“I’m honoured and excited to be given this opportunity to work alongside the Mayor, Chief Constable, and local people to make our communities safer and stronger. This role will not be without challenge, not least with continued budget pressures and increasing demand on our police, but we have a strong foundation on which to build on.”
