High Sheriff Rides into Town31 Jul 2020
Throughout the COVID-19 crisis, the Greater Manchester High Sheriff Police Trust has given away over £200,000 to support the most vulnerable communities of Greater Manchester.
Part of this funding has been allocated to support Greater Manchester Police officers in helping in targeting push bike theft, which has become more prevalent during lockdown.
This funding has been used to provide local police with BikeRegister bike marking kits, which enables bikes to be easily identified if recovered after being stolen.
Eamonn O’Neal, High Sheriff of Greater Manchester is pictured on his bike supporting one of the recent GMP BikeRegister bike marking events in Chorlton.
Mr O’Neal, is a former broadcaster and journalist in Manchester, and was appointed to his new role by the Queen in March 2020.
The role of High Sheriff is the oldest secular title in British history and among the most ancient in the world, dating back more than 1,300 years. At that time the Sheriff represented the monarch, collected taxes, raised armies and was the rule of law across the county.
