Piccadilly councillors are proud to announce that, after significant lobbying, we have secured funding for more police in central Manchester. Operation Mandera which increases the police presence in Piccadilly Gardens and its environs will now run until the end of the year.
Cllr Wheeler, who has been out with officers on the streets of Manchester over the summer, said, “The slashing of 2000 officers from Greater Manchester by the Liberal/Tory governments over the last eight years have made Mancunians less safe. While I welcome this move it is only a small step. We need more officers on the streets all year round protecting our communities.”
