I am not a career politician, I am a career copper. 30 years. 6 in the Tactical Aid Unit. By the end of my career I had made Inspector.
As part of the TAU, I help take drug dealers and hooligans off the streets.
I have 30 years police experience, and a detailed knowledge of the Greater Manchester Police. I know how to make the GMP work better.
I have many friends and colleagues still serving in the force. I will work with the police and cut crime across Greater Manchester.
Survey after survey shows that the public would prefer to see a former copper as Police Commissioner than a failed former politician. The people of Greater Manchester now have that choice.
My family has always done our bit for the community. My grandfather was a police officer, my wife and daughter are mobile carers and my son is a Royal Marine Commando.
This is my chance to make Greater Manchester safer for my children and grandchildren.

“I support Matt because he was made for this job. 30 years a copper, six years in the Tactical Aid Unit. Better a Inspector with proven leadership and an understanding of the job that a failed former minister.”
