The reasons for the decision are:
The National Anti-Corruption and Abuse Reporting Service has been commissioned nationally on behalf of the police service. It is being supported by the National Police Chief’s Council and will be implemented by Greater Manchester Police upon go-live in early 2024.

The reporting service gives members of the public a way to report information about a police officer or a member of police staff who they believe are taking advantage of their role or abusing their position of trust.

The service is run by the charity Crimestoppers, providing an anonymous and confidential reporting option, independent of the police service. When people contact the service, they can choose to remain 100% anonymous, or can opt to leave their details if they are willing for the force investigation team to contact them directly.


To provide funding of £8,223.71 in 2024/25 in support of a new national Anti-Corruption and Abuse Reporting Service, operated by Crimestoppers. This represents 50% match funding with GMP.
