Contact Greater Manchester Police Quickly Online

by jontwigge on 14 July, 2018


Greater Manchester Police officially launched its innovative new online chat service following feedback that more and more people want online services.  It is available on their main website at: in the bottom right corner.

The new system has been running as a pilot for the last six months but now the Force is encouraging people to go online when possible and speak to a specially trained advisor at the click of a button instead of picking up the phone.

The world cup, Donald Trump’s visit and the hot weather have all lead to an increase in calls to the police. They work really hard to deal with everything that comes in to them but still need the public to work with them, to think before they call and do everything they can to support each other and keep our communities safe.

A recent weekend saw an unprecedented 8,000 calls to 101 and 999.

The new LiveChat service helps to reduce the pressure and help people contact them faster.

You can use LiveChat between 8am and midnight to:

– Report a crime
– Give police information about their local area
– Get an update on a crime they have already reported
– Ask an advisor anything police related

During the pilot, GMP’s LiveChat saw 14,237 conversations take place for anything from noise complaints and neighbour disputes right up to disclosures of domestic abuse and modern slavery.

  2. Hi
    I have lived on Talbot St nearly all my life & obviously the population (families) & cars have multiplied
    There is a serious parking problem at the front of where I live
    I have no car at prese t my neighbour on the right has her kerb dropped & off Rd parking my neighbours to the left 1 has 1 car & mostly parks half on & half off the kerb
    The 1 in the corner has 3 in their household & constantly parks & blocks my front gate running over the grass verge at the front & public the pavement area
    I appreciate its difficult & do not any problems with my neighbours
    Apparently they do it because 1 of them had a problem with insurance her car was involved in an accident someone slid into her in the snow
    This is circa 27 to 33 Talbot St
    I have been advised to remain anonymous to save any problems
    Also maybe slow signs on our road would be better or even ramps as the cars do speed around the corner in front
    Hoping you can help with solving this problem
    Many thanks
    Friendly neighour
