GMP app support
Greater Manchester Police have developed two iPhone apps:
- The GMP app
- The GMP Museum app, featuring an audio guide by actor Chris Bisson
Android versions of these apps are in development.
This app helps give you quick access to policing services in your location. The app uses your location to help:
- Find your closest police station, its opening hours and contact details
- Find your closest neighbourhood policing team, local officers and policing priorities
- See what's happening around you, including wanted appeals, missing people and local people
- Quickly access news and appeals from the GMP website
- Access all GMP social media accounts, including Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Flickr
Note: 'Around you' map data indicates the general area in which an incident has taken place, not an exact location.
Take a walk into Manchester's past with the official application for the Greater Manchester Police Museum. Our audio guide will help enrich your visiting experience to the Museum, a historic building in the heart of Manchester's Northern Quarter. This app features:
- Audio guides to accompany your visit to the key galleries in the museum
- Historic photographs of policing from the first bobbies on the beat
- A guide to photographic opportunities - take your picture behind the original riot gates, in the dock or with police uniform through the ages and share it on social media through the app.
- Information about how to find out about your ancestors with our Archive Service.
