The force is split into 11 divisions, Bolton, Bury, North Manchester, South Manchester, Rochdale, Salford, Bury, Oldham, Trafford, Stockport and Wigan.

Greater Manchester Police vision is:
 Putting people first with everything we do
 Being proud of delivering an excellent policing service
 Working with, and for, the people of Greater Manchester to make communities safe and feel safe
