Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire & Rescue Services (HMICFRS) visits police forces and organisations in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, carrying out inspections or reviews ranging from individual functional areas - such as performance management or roads policing - through to force-level performance and leadership. HMICFRS also looks at critical national issues and themes, across the police service as a whole.

Our last inspection, assessing Police Efficiency, Effectiveness and Legitimacy (also known as PEEL), graded us as follows:

  • Effective at keeping people safe and reducing crime: Good
  • Efficient at keeping people safe and reducing crime: Good
  • Legitimate at keeping people safe and reducing crime : Good

(​Categories are: Outstanding, Good, Requires Improvement, Inadequate.)

HMIC found us to have a compliance rate of 90.9% in relation to accurate crime recording.
