Performance Management Report – December 2007

This inspection of the PSNI focused on performance management, which is viewed as being critical for the effective delivery of a range of services. It was part of a new risk based approach to inspections, focusing on key areas instead of a broad approach looking at all areas of delivery.

Please note: In July 2017 HMIC took on responsibility for fire & rescue service inspections and was renamed HM Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire & Rescue Services (HMICFRS). Inspections carried out before July 2017 may continue to refer to HMIC.
