Target Operating Model (TOM)

Greater Manchester is an amazing place and I am proud to be the Chief Constable.

We have faced some challenging times but have a huge amount of change taking place so that we can provide the best possible service.

We call the changes our Target Operating Model and it is transforming policing in Greater Manchester. At the heart of it is our focus on strong neighbourhood policing and closer working with local agencies such as councils and hospitals.
