Following a successful trial of the new website the site is now fully live and has replaced the previous website, making GMP one of the first UK forces to implement the new national site and associated online services.
You can take a look at the new site here https://www.gmp.police.uk/
In addition to the services launched earlier this year such as online Crime and Road Traffic Incident reporting they have also added a range of new services, including the online reporting of planned Events and Processions.
The advice and crime prevention pages have also been refreshed to provide national standardised content where possible which in time will mean the public will receive a more consistent service as this national website is rolled out to UK police forces.
Deputy Chief Constable Ian Pilling, said; “The launch of our new website with online services will empower the public to access information, advice and the services they need. It will also provide an additional way for them to engage with GMP. As the popularity of digital services continues to grow, it is anticipated we will see a shift in reporting from 101 to digital over time as people choose this option. This will help us to provide a better service for people who still prefer to contact us via 101.”
Additional services will be added to the site over the next few weeks. Further improvements are also planned later this year including online reporting of Anti-Social Behaviour and the launch of online payments for Firearms Licencing.
Finally, Online reporting is an additional choice for the public. It’s quicker and more convenient for those people that are happy to report things online. However 101 and Public Enquiry Counters are still available for people who prefer to engage with the police in this way.
