City of Manchester Division

Recommended Posts

junior_7178

I'm starting as a student officer soon and have been allocated City of Manchester Division. Can anybody tell me a bit about the division? I've seen the divisional map, so know it's boundaries but as I'm not from Manchester I'm not familiar with the geography of the area.

 

Which police stations could i end up working from? What is the area like (i know it includes the city centre)? Do you find yourselves with the same sort of city centre related crime day in day out, or do you get a wide range of jobs? What would life be like for a CoM division student officer? Are you predominantly double crewed as every time I've been into the city there is 2 cops in a vehicle? Do you get to do much proactive policing? Do you do much foot patrol/community policing?

I appreciate that's a lot of questions there but if anyone has anything to add feel free.

Cheers.

Unfortunately I can’t help you here however I’ve put down City as one of my divisional choices so whatever information you get, I’d be interested to hear it.

I’m still a waaaaays off of actually getting there mind. Final interview on Monday.

Stretches from Wythenshawe to Cheethamhill so a massive and diverse area and the stations are just as spread out. Once independent and driving you’ll be single crewed for most of the time. It’s a tough division to work but you’ll learn a lot.

I think out of any division, you're most likely to be double crewed on CoM. Not that it's a rule you must be though!

They have a double crewed van or two and that’s about it. It’s the exception rather than the rule.
