PEEL assessments 2021/22

PEEL (police effectiveness, efficiency and legitimacy) is our regular assessment of police forces in England and Wales. We use inspection findings, analysis and our professional judgment to assess how good forces are in several areas of policing. Most of these areas are then graded as outstanding, good, adequate, requires improvement or inadequate.

In the table below you can see the forces we have reported on in the 2021/22 PEEL cycle, with an overview of how they performed. Choose a force to read its full report.

If your force isn’t below, you can find its most recent report on the 2018/19 PEEL assessments page.
