PEEL: Police effectiveness 2015 (vulnerability) - A national overview

Summary

The extent to which a police force is successful at identifying, protecting and supporting those who are vulnerable is a core indicator of its overall effectiveness. In recognition of this, as part of its annual PEEL effectiveness inspection programme, Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary (HMIC) graded all 43 police forces in England and Wales on how effectively they protect vulnerable people from harm and support victims. The inspection included a focus on how they respond to domestic abuse victims and missing and absent children, and how prepared they are to tackle child sexual exploitation.

This is the first time that we have graded forces on their effectiveness at protecting vulnerable people from harm (although HMIC has examined many aspects of vulnerability through a range of other inspections).

The national overview report summarises the top-line findings of this inspection, and sets out the grades (of outstanding, good, requires improvement or inadequate) given to each force. The force reports give the detailed inspection findings which led to these grades.

In addition, there are (or will be) other thematic reports based on the vulnerability inspection findings. These are:
