Crime inspection force reports

Summary

This inspection looks at how effective police forces are at cutting crime. The public expects the police to reduce, prevent and investigate crime, bring suspects to justice and, with other services and agencies, care for victims. Victims are at the heart of this inspection and are entitled to a service from the police. This service includes regular information about their case as well as the opportunity to provide an impact statement and have their say on potential criminal justice outcomes.

To assess each force’s effectiveness, we looked at three specific areas:

  • How effective is the force at reducing crime and preventing offending?
  • How effective is the force at investigating offending?
  • How effective is the force at tackling anti-social behaviour?

The crime inspection provides HMIC with the first opportunity to test whether each force’s approach to improving how it tackles domestic abuse is beginning to have an effect and this forms part of our overall assessment of the force.
