Derbyshire 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.

Leadership

Last updated 25/02/2016

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.

Derbyshire Constabulary has strong leadership and has clearly defined and communicated their priorities and expectations with the workforce, which means it has a good understanding of what is expected of them. The senior leadership team provides visible and accessible leadership.

The constabulary’s leadership programme provides development for staff and officers at all levels within the organisation. While many staff and officers we spoke to are clear that their leadership training is beneficial, the constabulary has no formal assessment of how well this programme improves its leadership capability.
