GMP Twitter becomes a flurry of Avro news.

Operation Avro, the latest force-wide police movement, went into effect this morning.

This was apparent on the Greater Manchester Police’s Twitter, which told the public that they will be seeing Operation Avro this week.


The cops delivered on their promise and recently social media has been alive with posts showing them in full raid gear busting down doors in Salford.

These raids were tied to reports of drugs and weapons in the properties.


Operation Avro is a new initiative that gives a different district in Greater Manchester a surge in new resources and specialist officers every month.


It is intended to be a highly visible operation. They intend for the public to see that they are responding to their concerns of crime.


Today, officers were given public briefings in Walkden and at the Lowry, which the public were allowed to attend. Read more about that here.
