PEEL: Police effectiveness, efficiency and legitimacy 2018/19 – West Midlands Police (9515)

Cause of concern The size of the vetting backlog within West Midlands Police is a cause of concern.

Recommendation • The force should ensure all staff have received at least the lowest level of vetting clearance for their roles as quickly as possible, working to clear both the vetting backlog and new vetting renewals when they become due so that it complies fully with the national vetting guidelines.
