Greater Manchester 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.

Greater Manchester Police is a well led force with a clear understanding of the capacity and capability of its leadership at all levels. The force has communicated clearly its expectations of leaders, and has made a concerted effort to empower its staff and officers to feel supported to take decisions.

While the force provides extensive leadership development and training at all levels, it could do more to improve its identification and development of talented individuals towards promotion. Many police staff and officers are unaware of the talent management process, while senior managers inconsistently follow the process itself.
