City of London PEEL 2015

Other inspections

How well has the force performed in our other inspections?

In addition to the three core PEEL pillars, HMICFRS carries out inspections of a wide range of policing activity throughout the year. Some of these are conducted alongside the PEEL inspections; others are joint inspections.

Findings from these inspections are published separately to the main PEEL reports, but are taken into account when producing the rounded assessment of each force's performance.

As part of HMIC’s annual all-force inspections into police effectiveness, efficiency and legitimacy (PEEL) in 2015, HMIC assessed how well led forces are at every rank and grade of the organisation and across all areas inspected in PEEL. We reviewed how well a force understands and is developing its leaders; whether it has set a clear and compelling future direction; and how well it motivates and engages the workforce.

City of London Police’s senior leadership team communicates clearly the values, behaviours and ethics it expect the workforce to exhibit. This is primarily set out through internal communications and training, and through the visibility and approachability of the commissioner and senior leadership team.

City of London Police has a clear sense of how its workforce perceives senior leadership and leadership in general across the force. This understanding helped the force realise that some of its employees had a negative view of their working environment, which is informing the force’s reduction and restructure of its building estate.

Questions for Leadership
