Police forces

How well is your police force doing?

HMICFRS inspects and monitors the 43 territorial police forces in England and Wales, sometimes also referred to as Home Office-funded forces.

We carry out a regular annual assessment of police force performance, called the PEEL assessments. PEEL stands for police effectiveness, efficiency and legitimacy. It is the programme in which HMICFRS draws together the evidence from its annual all-force inspections. HMICFRS introduced these assessments so that you’re able to judge the performance of your force and policing as a whole.

Choose your police force from the map to read its PEEL assessment, browse news items or other reports, or find out more about the force and the context in which it works.
