Lancashire 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.

Lancashire Constabulary has a transparent and responsive chief officer team that understands its current leadership capacity and capability. The chief officer team clearly articulates to leaders throughout the organisation what is expected of them through frequent and direct communication, with a focus on new recruits and those who are newly promoted.

The constabulary is actively seeking to identify and develop talented potential future leaders from within the organisation, while it has a leadership programme that provides opportunities for the whole workforce. Wellbeing of officers and staff is a strong thread in the constabulary’s new approach and has made a significant difference to the workforce.
