The GMP approach to delivering the ALO/CPDA role involves a team of six consultants and one dedicated crime analyst3 under the title of Greater Manchester Police Design for Security Consultancy (GMP DfSC). Although the team are based within GMP Police Headquarters, have access to police recorded crime data, Neighbourhood 36 Crime Prevention through Housing Design Policing Teams (NPTs) and other relevant police intelligence, the DfS consultants are civilian staff who have a background within a built environment profession such as design, architecture or planning.
