HMICFRS is carrying out our fifth annual assessment of police effectiveness, efficiency and legitimacy (PEEL). This is designed to give you information about how your local police force is performing in several important areas, in a way that is comparable both across England and Wales, and year on year.
Each force is inspected in one of three batches throughout the PEEL year.
We have not yet inspected Metropolitan. We will publish our findings here later in the PEEL year.
We will assess:
the extent to which the force is effective at reducing crime and keeping people safe;
the extent to which the force operates efficiently and sustainably; and
the extent to which the force treats the public and its workforce legitimately.
