Policing response to Covid-19

Part of: Behind the frontline Policing on the beat

HMICFRS’s priority for 2020 is supporting policing and fire & rescue services as they continue to respond to the Covid-19 pandemic.

We are planning a policing Covid-19 inspection for October and early November 2020.

We want to answer these questions:

  • How well did the police prepare for the Covid-19 pandemic?
  • How are they responding to it?
  • How are they learning, adapting and improving?

We plan to publish our report in early 2021.

We are also inspecting the fire and rescue service response to Covid-19.
