Nottinghamshire 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.

Nottinghamshire Police is a well led organisation. The chief officer team provides clear expectations around how its leaders should lead by using the force’s shared values. We found a clear sense of direction and that force leaders generally feel confident that they know what the organisation expects of them, although less consistently so at lower ranks and supervisory levels.

The force has not analysed its current or future leadership capacity and capability. However, it has a better understanding of the background, skills composition and experience of its senior leadership teams compared to managers and supervisors.

Questions for Leadership
