2013 value for money profiles published
HMIC has today published a value for money profile, along with a shorter, summary profile, for each police force in England and Wales.
The profiles provide comparative data on a wide range of policing activities. For instance: does your force spend more or less than other similar forces? Does it receive fewer or more 999 calls? How does the crime rate differ from other force areas?
The profiles highlight what these differences are, but not why they exist. Forces and police and crime commissioners can explain the differences; the profiles aim to help you ask the right questions.
