One of the most important 19th century industrialised cities in the world, Manchester has grown into the 21st century to become one of Europe’s major cultural and urban centres once again. Major urban renewal and development projects across Manchester are some of the biggest ever seen in any European city. While Manchester’s reputation as a culture and media centre, home to the BBC and countless musical and cultural communities is well known. You’ve also got excellent travel links to almost anywhere in the world from Manchester International Airport, and with the Cheshire Plain to the south, and the Pennines to the north and east you’re never far away from the outdoor life too.
As a neighbourhood police officer with Greater Manchester Police you’ll get the opportunity to work with a hugely diverse range of communities in the Metropolitan County of Greater Manchester. They serve over 3 million people across the urban centres of Manchester, Salford, Tameside, Stockport, Bolton, Wigan, Trafford, Bury, Rochdale and Oldham. Building effective relationships with the communities of Greater Manchester is at the heart of the policing model, and neighbourhood policing is central to this, with neighbourhood officers dedicated to and connected with communities across Greater Manchester.
