Complementing wider reforms to the individual complaints system, the Government committed to bring in a ground-breaking system of police super-complaints.
In early 2017, Manchester City Council’s Population Health and Wellbeing Team commissioned researchers at Manchester Metropolitan University to undertake a piece of research on nature and prevalence of drug related litter in Manchester.
