Alongside its partners. GMP has provided 9,000 smartphones and tablets to officers and staff across the Force. In addition, a suite of apps were also made available enabling GMP to complete a range of activities. While interacting with members of the public and victims of crime. Allowing officers to spend more time in the community. Without the need to return to the station to complete paper work.
