Hertfordshire 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.

Hertfordshire Constabulary has strong leadership and has defined and communicated clearly what it expects from the workforce. The constabulary has a strong programme of leadership training which motivates its staff, however, there is no formal process to identify talent, which is an area that it could improve.

The constabulary has taken some effective steps to communicate its future plans and priorities, however requires further work in this area to ensure that its workforce has a clearer understanding of the constabulary’s vision for local policing. The constabulary has clearly communicated to its workforce information about collaboration with other forces.
