Greater Manchester PEEL 2015
How well has the force performed in our other inspections?
In addition to the three core PEEL pillars, HMICFRS carries out inspections of a wide range of policing activity throughout the year. Some of these are conducted alongside the PEEL inspections (for instance, our 2016 leadership assessment); others are joint inspections.
Findings from these inspections are published separately to the main PEEL reports, but are taken into account when producing the rounded assessment of each force's performance.
This section sets out the reports published by HMIC this year that help to better understand the performance of Greater Manchester Police.
Honour-based violence (HBV)
Greater Manchester Police is not yet prepared across all areas to protect people from harm from HBV.
The force has prepared its leadership and governance structures in order to support its ability to identify and respond to cases of HBV.
The force is prepared in respect of its awareness and understanding of HBV, and ensures that its officers and staff recognise, understand and identify victims from the first point of contact.
The force is not yet prepared in respect of the levels of protection to be offered to victims of HBV.
The force is not yet prepared in respect of enforcement against perpetrators of HBV. The force is not yet prepared to prevent offences occurring.

Greater Manchester Police has made improvements to how it protects children, however is still not performing well in some areas.
HMIC was pleased to see the priority that the force has given to child protection, and the strong desire to improve the protection of children at risk. The force has made some good progress since our inspection in 2014, particularly in ensuring information on sex offenders is available to neighbourhood officers, as well as an effort to detain fewer children unnecessarily in police custody.
HMIC would like to see the force show the same level of improvement in other areas. There are still delays in computer analysis in the high-tech crime unit, which needs to be reduced in order to ensure children are not left at risk and perpetrators are prevented from continuous offending.
There is a real need for the force to improve how it carries out investigations, in particular in relation to child sexual exploitation and where children are exposed to domestic abuse.
HMIC will continue to monitor the child protection work carried out by Greater Manchester Police.
