GMP aware of fraudulent email about speeding offences

Detective Inspector Martin Hopkinson, of GMP’s Serious Crime Division, said: “Greater Manchester Police is aware of a scam email circulating informing the recipient that they have been caught speeding.

“This email is fraudulent and  may ask you to give your personal or financial information or attempt to infect your computer with malware.

“Once your computer is infected with malware cyber criminals may be able to access your personal and financial information which could be used to defraud you.

“GMP would never send out correspondence via email requesting payment of fines nor will we ask  for your personal and financial information.

“I would urge people to delete any such emails and  ensure they always have the most up to date security software. You can report any such activity direct to action fraud at www.actionfraud.police.uk or phone 0300 123 2040.

“GMP’s Cyber Crime Team have acted swiftly in relation to these reports and have removed the offending website which was hosted outside of the UK.”

Message from the Chief Constable

My thoughts are with the families of the 22 people who were killed in the horrific attack at Manchester Arena on Monday 22 May and with the many people who were injured. This has been a hugely challenging time for Manchester and also for Greater Manchester Police. I have been to visit many of the police officers who were the first on the scene and made desperate attempts to save lives. For one of the officers it was only her fourth shift after leaving training and two other officers have only left training 10 weeks ago.

I am so proud of the officers and staff who have worked tirelessly during the past three weeks in undertaking the investigation, in supporting families and those affected, and to protect Greater Manchester. This is still a live and fast-moving investigation and there has been a significant number of searches and arrests.

We have seen Greater Manchester come together in a show of support to all those affected. This can be seen in the fact that millions of pounds have already been raised to help those affected by the attack. There has also been a huge amount of support to the emergency services and those who were the first to respond to the attack.

What was clear was that all agencies quickly came together to manage the initial incident and this is continuing as we now move towards looking at how to help Greater Manchester recover. The response has demonstrated what we can achieve when we work together. On behalf of Greater Manchester Police I want to thank everyone for the support we have received but also for the work and commitment shown since the tragic event in Manchester.

A Minute to Remember

Crime Update

The 12 months to the end of May 2017 has shown a 21 per cent increase in victim based crime, which includes violent crime, domestic abuse and sexual offences. Domestic abuse has seen a 35 per cent increase and sexual offences have seen a 26 per cent increase.

Hate crime has increased by 35 per cent. We are closely monitoring the situation after the Manchester Attack on 22 May. Violent crime has increased by 40 per cent with an increase of 15 per cent in those violent offences involving injury. Burglary is now being separated into residential burglary and business and community burglary which has made it difficult to draw comparisons over time. Burglary as a category has increased by 12 per cent. Robbery has increased by 46 per cent and personal robbery by 52 per cent.

Crime prevention advice continues to be provided through the website and social media to encourage people to become more security conscious and protect themselves.

Reports of antisocial behaviour have reduced by 10 per cent.

Significant training has taken place across GMP to ensure officers are accurately recording reports of crime. This work has had an impact on the levels of recorded crime and has accounted for the increase seen between March and May.

Focus on the Citizen’s Contract

More than 2,500 people took part in a survey about the future of policing and how we can all work to make Greater Manchester safer. The survey was part of a consultation initiative that has been taking place from February this year. Forty-two meetings were attended by the team leading the consultation and more than 800 people were spoken to about the challenges facing policing. Meetings took place in every borough across Greater Manchester and also involved a number of diverse groups.

The consultation will support the development of the first Greater Manchester Citizen’s Contract. The Contract will outline what people can expect from GMP but also what we need people to do to help keep people safe.

Work is now underway to analyse all the data and information that has been received during the consultation both from local people and from GMP officers and staff. The information will be used to help develop the Contract.

Creating a Citizen’s Contract is one of the key elements of the work to develop policing in Greater Manchester to meet the challenges faced now and in the future. The ambitious plan to transform policing was outlined 18 months ago by Chief Constable Ian Hopkins.

Operation Rogue Trader

A total of 294 vehicles were stopped and checked as part of a national week of action to target rogue traders. The operation took place between 8 and 12 May and involved the work of police, trading standards, Department for Work and Pensions, UK Border Force and other agencies.

Operation Rogue Trader was designed to disrupt criminal activity and to put an end to illegitimate traders who target the most vulnerable members of our community. Three vehicles were recovered, more than £2,500 in cash seized, 23 companies were stopped and checked and 17 vehicles were seized for no tax or insurance. In addition three meat trucks were inspected by partners resulting in notice being served for an unhygienic vehicle and the removal of meat products as they were unfit for human consumption.

Police Memorial

A national campaign was launched to raise funds to build a new UK Police Memorial. The memorial at the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire will be inscribed with the names of over 1,400 officers and staff from the police who have died from injuries sustained on duty.

More details can be found on the Police Memorial Website

Attack sentencing

Two men who left a disabled 65-year-old woman with a fractured skull after brutally attacking her in her own home have been jailed. Nathan Lee Clark (17/12/1992), of no fixed abode, was sentenced to 19 years in prison for Conspiracy To Rob and GBH with intent. Stephen Mortin (28/10/1993), of Rutland Street, Hyde was sentenced to 18 years in prison for Conspiracy To Rob and GBH.

The court heard that the pair forced their way inside the woman’s home on Neal Avenue, armed with a knife and a baseball bat and demanded money. When she refused Mortin and Clark launched into a savage attack, leaving her with injuries to her arms, a fractured skull, and multiple facial fractures. She has since made a full recovery.

£80,000 raised by Key 103’s Cash for Kids Superhero Day.

On Friday 5 May, Cash for Kids held their annual Superhero Day to raise money for the charity When You Wish Upon a Star. Throughout the day GMP supported the event at two local schools, took part in the dress down day and various other activities.

 

IDAHOBIT recognised

Chief Constable Ian Hopkins, accompanied by Mayor of Greater Manchester Andy Burnham and GMP Pride Network representative Ryan Orme, raised the GMP rainbow flag outside GMP Headquarters as a show of support for IDAHOBIT day. IDAHOBIT day is the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia and takes place on 17 May. This is a worldwide celebration of sexual and gender diversities that was created in 2004 to draw the attention of the violence and discrimination experienced by LGBT people internationally.

If your friend or family member is suffering from domestic violence, or you think that they’re being abused, call the Domestic Abuse Helpline on 0161 636 7525. Help lines aren’t just for victims – they also provide support for concerned family and friends.

There are many different types of domestic abuse: financial; emotional; psychological; physical and sexual and there is no simple way to spot whether a person is experiencing domestic violence, but signs could include: absence from work; education or social events; personality changes, e.g. they become withdrawn or repeated unexplained injuries.

New Hate Crime Strategy for 2016

The 2016 – 2019 Hate Crime Strategy has been launched and is available to download.

Hate crime is a serious social issue that has a significant impact on its victims, families and the community. The strategy was developed on behalf of the Council and Manchester’s Community Safety Partnership and sets out our key priorities for tackling and responding to Hate Crime.

In order to develop an effective and relevant Strategy, we consulted as widely as possible with a variety of people. The first part of this consultation involved agencies, voluntary and community groups who fed back their views at an event held in May 2015. A summary of the feedback can be found here.

You also kindly gave us your views and feedback via an online questionnaire and by returning the paper copies in the post. The consultation has now closed, the results were analysed and fed in to the development of the new strategy. A full summary of all the consultation findings can be found here. 

Thank you for taking the time to get involved in the consultation, your views have been important in shaping a Hate Crime Strategy that is committed targeting hate crime an its causes.

The Whalley Range Community Forum worker and Chair attended a training course in 2015 to find out more about the JNR8 Youth & Community Centre taking on the role of a Third Party Hate Crime Reporting Centre, in line with Manchester’s Hate Crime Strategy:

http://www.manchester.gov.uk/downloads/download/5185/hate_crime

The strategy sets out a clear vision for tackling hate crime in Manchester against the following five key partnership priorities:
• Prevent hate crime,
• Increase the reporting of hate crime and hate incidents,
• Take effective action against perpetrators,
• Support victims of hate crime,
• Improve partnership responses.

The five strands of hate crime set out by the Government which will be recorded and monitored are:
• Disability,
• Race, Religion or belief,
• Sexual orientation,
• Trans and gender reassignment.
• Alternative sub culture became the sixth hate crime strand in April 2013.

The Whalley Range Community Forum believe the JNR8 Centre is an ideal venue to support residents who feel they have been a victim of a hate crime or hate incident – as we have built up a good relationship with local residents and groups.
There are facilities at the centre to support victims to report incidents on the dedicated website www.report-it.org.uk/ which gives information and an online reporting facility.
(reporting incidents anonymously is an option).

The different levels of a reporting centre can vary depending on resources available – from displaying literature, promoting hate crime reporting or providing recording, reporting and signposting to support services.
We aim to display information and support residents if they wish to report incidents online.

This is a list of Third Party Reporting Centres on the South Manchester and North Manchester Divisions:

Greater Manchester Police have launched a hub for shoppers to make purchases safely online without giving out their home address.

The ‘Internet Purchase Exchange Location’ scheme has been set up outside the GMP NorthManchester headquarters, in Central Park, where it will be under CCTV surveillance.

It is hoped the hub can act as a place where shoppers can meet to exchange money and goods on websites such as eBay, Craigslist and Gumtree in a safe environment.

Users would not need to give out their home address, with people being able to meet up at the hub to exchange goods.

The idea is currently being trialled in North Manchester, with plans to expand across the region.

GMP said the number of crimes involving people shopping online is rapidly increasing.

The aim of the Internet Purchase Exchange Location is to reduce the risk for shoppers by removing the need for people to give out their home addresses and provide a neutral ground close to police officers.

Police warn of the dangers of Pokemon Go to children

 Police are urging parents and teachers to speak to young people about staying safe when using the recently launched Pokemon Go app.

The app allows people to set up a ‘beacon’ which can then encourage other users to reach a specific venue and police are concerned it could be the latest way online criminals attempt to target victims.

Detective Superintendent Joanne Rawlinson, from GMP’s public protection division, said: “We know that criminals move quickly to exploit the latest developments to target victims and Pokemon Go will already be in their sights. There have already been incidents in America where young people are thought to have been targeted through the app.

“I would urge parents to speak to their children about the app and the best ways to make sure they stay safe. Talking to your child is one of the best ways to keep them safe.

“Online child sexual abuse and grooming is a rapidly growing problem and as part of Project Phoenix we continue to work with other partner agencies to raise awareness of the issues and provide advice and guidance on Internet safety, how to stay safe, spot the signs and how to report offences. Young people, parents, teachers and others need to know what to look for so they can raise concerns.

“I ask parents to speak to their children about the sites they visit online, who they talk to and most importantly what to do if they see inappropriate content or are approached by someone that worries them. Advise your child to tell someone they trust and stress they won’t be in trouble. Explain to your child that friends are people that they know in ‘real life’ not someone they don’t know online.

“Parents, make sure you know what your child is doing online and encourage them to talk about any people that approach them online. Everyone needs to keep security settings high and make sure the friends you are talking to online are really your friends.”

Advice to users is:

•    Be cautious about alerting strangers to where you will be in future. Be careful where you leave ‘beacons’
•    Parents, supervise children when using the app
•    Always pay attention to your surroundings, especially in built up areas
•    Where possible play with friends and stay in a group
•    Avoid playing near roads
•    Play at home – You can use lures to attract Pokémon to you
•    Keep your device safe – You can still play with your phone out of site, it will vibrate when a Pokémon is near
•     Don’t play while driving
For more information on child sexual exploitation and who to contact if you have any concerns that a young person you know may be a victim of child sexual exploitation visit www.itsnotokay.co.uk.

You can also report it to Greater Manchester Police by calling 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111. If someone is in immediate danger, dial 999.



Sir Richard Leese, Leader of Manchester City Council, responds to the increase in hate crime in the region.

Sir Richard said: “Ours is a city which has always welcomed non-native Mancunians and respected the contribution they make to our economy, our public services – especially the NHS, in which many work – and the general vibrancy of the city.
“The people who are most definitely not welcome are the racists and thugs who do not abide by the values of this great city and make no positive contribution.
“Manchester remains an inclusive, international city and we will not tolerate any abuse of people from different national, ethnic or religious backgrounds. We will work closely with Greater Manchester Police to ensure our communities continue to feel safe and that those who spout poison are brought to justice and appropriately punished.
“Whilst sadly there has been an increase in hate crime incidents taking place in the wake of the referendum result, I know that the majority of those who voted Leave are not racist bigots. Although they might have legitimate concerns about a changing world which have to be addressed by building an economically and socially inclusive city and I’m they will join with me and all other ordinary, decent people in condemning the actions of those who would spread hate.”

Who we are
The Greater Manchester Victims’ Services website has been put together by Greater Manchester Mayor and Police and Crime Commissioner Tony Lloyd, along with partner agencies.

Working together, we want to radically transform and improve the way victims’ services are delivered in Greater Manchester, putting victims and survivors of crime at the heart of everything we do, including service design and delivery.

The partner agencies involved in this work include:

Greater Manchester Mayor and Police and Crime Commissioner Tony Lloyd
Greater Manchester Police
New Economy
Public Service Reform Team
Victim support services
Greater Manchester’s local criminal justice board
Representatives from NHS England, Public Health and clinical commissioning groups

My vision for local policing: a message from Tony Lloyd

One of my most important jobs is setting the priorities for policing and community safety in Greater Manchester.  After speaking to elected representatives, local organisations, community groups, businesses and many individuals across Greater Manchester, I’ve identified six key priorities for policing and community safety. These set out how Greater Manchester Police will work with local councils, health, other agencies and – most importantly of all – local people, to make Greater Manchester safer and stronger.

We’ve made a short film to explain the plan which you can see here:

https://youtu.be/vh-hibu5UwQ

These aren’t really my priorities – they belong to us all. Delivering them will be challenging as we face cuts in government finding to our local services. But it is ambitious programme, which I believe we can deliver together.

Ultimately this is about all of us working together to make Greater Manchester even greater.  It puts the people of Greater Manchester at its heart.

You can read the plan in full by visiting:

www.gmpcc.org.uk/plan

This is an ongoing conversation and, as ever, I would be really pleased to hear your views.

Kind regards

Tony Lloyd

Greater Manchester Mayor, and Police & Crime Commissioner

SCRATCH - scratchcard FINAL-1

Greater Manchester Police is asking people to scratch beneath the surface of their relationship and consider whether it is abusive as new coercive control laws come into their second month of implementation.

The new SCRATCH campaign sees officers highlight the new legislation that makes controlling and coercive behaviour a crime – enabling police to pursue arrests and charges, and safeguard victims who may have previously been unable to make a criminal complaint.

During the launch on Thursday 18 February, members of the public will be given SCRATCH cards which, instead of revealing a cash prize, will uncover another layer of control as the sections are scratched away. Officers visiting domestic disputes will also be encouraged to use the scratch cards with victims, to help them understand what constitutes coercive and controlling behaviour.

Assistant Chief Constable at GMP, Robb Potts, said:

“There has long been a call for the law to adapt and acknowledge that psychological exploitation in a relationship can be as damaging as physical abuse. Now that the new legislation has come in, our work as a force also needs to develop.

“We have already trained over 500 front line officers to deal with reports of this nature and this work will continue over the coming months. As an employer GMP also has a responsibility for the welfare of its staff and as such, we will also be sharing information on the change in the law internally.

“It’s really important for us to make the public aware of this change in the law and for people to know that we are taking reports of this type seriously. The SCRATCH campaign will add to our existing work.

Greater Manchester Mayor and Police and Crime Commissioner Tony Lloyd has launched a new website for victims and survivors of crime in Greater Manchester.

The website brings together information about victims’ services and the criminal justice system under one roof. People can call a helpline, read practical advice and information, or search an online directory to find details of a local support service. All at a time that suits them and regardless of when the crime took place or whether it was reported to police.

The website can be found here: www.gmvictims.org.uk

The website officially launched on 22 October 2015. This is the first version of the site, feedback is being invited from people who have been a victim of crime and other key stakeholders to make improvements in the coming weeks and months.

Putting victims of crime at the heart of service design and delivery
Tony is responsible for commissioning services for victims and survivors of crime in Greater Manchester. This website is just the first step in a journey which designed to radically transform the way victims’ services are delivered in Greater Manchester, putting victims and survivors of crime at the heart of service design and delivery.

If you would like more information, or have any feedback on the site, contact Kate Leach on 0161 793 3020 or email: info@gmvictims.org.uk.


GMP have developed a short survey for people who have either personally experienced hate crime, or know someone who has.

The survey covers issues around reporting hate crime and supporting people who have been affected by
it.  It can be accessed by following this link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/gmhatecrime
It will take about 5 minutes to complete and responses are anonymous.
We’d really appreciate it if you would pass this on to anyone you know who may be interested, as well as sharing on your social media.

 

 


Time to change

GMP pledged its commitment to challenging mental health stigma and promoting positive wellbeing among staff and officers on 12 October.  The MIND Blue Light Time to Change Pledge was signed by Force Wellbeing Lead Chief Superintendent Zoe Sheard. It is supported by an action plan which states the Force’s commitment to deliver a number of activities that will support the mental welfare of those within the organisation.

Representatives for wellbeing from across the Force were invited to a launch event, where they heard testimonials from their colleagues and were shown a message of support recorded by presenter and chair of MIND, Stephen Fry.

Ramadan in focus

A short series of videos have been produced to give people an insight into the challenges faced by colleagues observing Ramadan alongside their policing duties. The first video features PCSO Ahmed Farooqi from the South Manchester Division. Click here to watch.

Deputy Chief Constable Ian Hopkins said: “Hopefully the videos will give an insight into what observing Ramadan means for our colleagues and help to give a better understanding to those of us of a different faith or no faith. I think it is really important that we all try to understand the differences that collectively make GMP and our communities stronger.”


 

Whalley Range Interfaith meeting at St Margaret’s Centre, 14th May 2015

Our Whalley Range PCSO – Ahmed Farooqi – recently met with Rev. Robert Boulter from St Margaret’s Church who has been involved with interfaith groups for many years.
Ahmed invited local Church Leaders, Mosque Imams, Sikh Temple Leader and Hindu Temple Priest to meet with representatives from local faith organisations, community groups and youth workers: 15 people attended this meeting from  St Margaret’s and St Edmunds Church, Zakariya/Minhaj-ul-Quran Mosque/ Jamia Rasoolia Islamic Centre and Sri Guru Govind Singh Gurdwara / Gita Bhavan Hindu Temple.

See the photos below demonstrating the We Stand Together initiative: Ahmed’s hope is that representatives from the Mosques, Churches and Sikh Temples  will meet once  a month to get to know each other and interact, ultimately to work with the local community groups,  moving the meeting every month from Mosque to Church to Sikh Temple and Hindu Temple.
