The Labour Mayor is responsible for policing in Greater Manchester, including our part of Bury – setting priorities, handling the budget, and delivering results. But over the past 4 years, we've seen Police repeatedly forced back on to pen and paper due to a failing IT system. The time taken to answer 999 calls rose from 12 to 48 seconds, despite a 10-second national target. Over 80,000 crimes go unrecorded, including serious violent offences. GMP have been forced into special measures with the author of the damning report into policing saying the risk to the region is 'high'.
