The crime and disorder network said...that information sharing about how communities can get involved in community safety activities needs to be improved.
Take this concern to partners in the police and council and to the Crime and Disorder Reduction Partnership. This has resulted in the attached document which has some very useful information in it. We can make a difference together (thanks especially to Ruth Greenwood at Tameside Council).
Doorstep safety advice can be found at www.doorstepcrime.net (please note that doorstep criminals could approach potential victims on the street as well as on the doorstep). If you have any concerns please pass on the information to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0161 339 4985.

There are many ways people in Greater Manchester can get involved in GMPA work. For example, you can visit the Having Your Say section to tell us the issues you feel police should focus on. Alternatively, why not put pen to paper to tell us your thoughts on any other police-related matter?
Perhaps you have a little spare time and would like to make a real contribution to the delivery of a first-class police service? Then why not become a GMPA volunteer? These are members of the public who give up their spare time to get involved in one of the following:
- Appropriate adult scheme.
- Independent custody visiting.
- Animal welfare visiting scheme.
You can also find GMPA's Volunteer Policy on in the GMPA Publications page in the Policies section.
To find out more about these schemes use the links on the page or on the left-hand side of the screen. You can also contact Lisa Hindle Volunteer Schemes Development Officer on 0161 793 3048 or Alison Howard Volunteer Schemes Co-ordinator on 0161 793 3163.
The Budget simulator shows you how much it cost Greater Manchester Police Authority to provide policing in Greater Manchester in 2009/2010. You can then decide how you would allocate the money across the departments next year if were in charge of the Greater Manchester Police budget. Remember, you must balance the budget so if you increase spending in some areas, you’ll need to cut it in others.
What happens to the results?
The simulator only takes a few minutes to complete and you can see the consequences of your decisions and change your mind about spending levels before you submit your completed budget. Everyone who completes the Simulator will be entered into a draw for a prize and your spending decisions will be used by GMPA to inform the police budget in 2011/2012. Once the 2011/2012 budget has been set, you will receive an email to let you know what decisions were made and how your say had an impact. Enjoy the Simulator!
