Greater Manchester Police’s first community reporters have been identified after an overwhelming response from people wanting to experience policing first hand.
In just two days there had been more than 100 people who said they wanted to spend time with their neighbourhood officers and talk about what they find. Applications are still being sent in by people keen to get involved.
As part of ‘MyGMP’ the Force is encouraging people to say how they will measure success in tackling crime and antisocial behaviour. People in Stockport and the Greater Manchester area are being asked to explain how they will judge whether Greater Manchester Police is making a difference in their communities.
Deputy Chief Constable Ian Hopkins said: “We are finalising the details to get the first community reporters out with officers as soon as we can. The response has been fantastic and we hope if it works well we can get more people taking part.”
