[ALO/CPDA] The Greater Manchester police model The previous sections have summarised both the role of the ALO/ CPDA and the typical process of delivering that role. The chapter will now move on to discuss a different approach to delivering the role, one which has gradually evolved over the past two decades, and an approach which at the time of writing, for many reasons (discussed below) is beginning to be viewed as what Monchuk (2011) refers to as ‘the way forward in designing out crime (Monchuk, 2011, p.
The chapter discusses recent changes in the process and method of delivery following the extensive cuts to police budgets, and how this has affected a role which was already historically viewed as a low priority within policing.

In addition to presentation and discussion of the ‘typical’ process and delivery of CPTED advice within local planning authorities and police forces, the chapter presents the unique approach adopted by one northern police force: Greater Manchester Police (GMP).
