Cleveland PEEL 2015
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.
Cleveland Police has clear expectations of leaders across the force, and staff have high regard for chief officers, whom they view as credible, visible and approachable. However, not all staff understand the force’s expectations of them. The force has developed some effective leadership programmes, though these focus on traditional indicators, and do not develop some core leadership skills. The force listens to its workforce through surveys, and is improving its wider communications and engagement.
