South Wales PEEL 2015
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.
South Wales Police is well led and can show that it understands the skills, capability and capacity of its workforce. The force is clear about the standards that are expected from its leaders and there is a well-established culture of focusing on quality of service.
The force has communicated a clear, realistic and motivating sense of the future direction of the force which is linked to its organisational strategy. Its mission statement: ‘Keeping South Wales Safe’ and its vision, ‘To be the best at understanding and responding to our communities’ needs’ is well understood by the workforce.
