Hampshire 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.

Hampshire Constabulary demonstrates strong and effective leadership at all levels of its workforce and has communicated a clearly-defined set of leadership principles which the workforce knows well. The Leadership Programme is evidence of how the constabulary develops its leaders to demonstrate the progressive, inclusive and responsive style of leadership necessary while the constabulary radically changes its organisational structure and operating model. HMIC found in Hampshire Constabulary a strong sense of purpose, clear future plans and priorities and a workforce that chief officers both care for and about.
