This consultation has now closed.

This consultation asks for your views on HMICFRS’s proposed policing inspection programme for 2019/20. This comprises:

  • national thematic inspections;
  • joint inspections;
  • integrated PEEL assessments;
  • inspections of other national law enforcement agencies;
  • commissions from the Home Secretary, and police and crime commissioners and other local policing bodies; and
  • HMICFRS’s work on super-complaints.

In particular, you are invited to respond to the following questions:

  1. Are there any significant new or emerging problems in or for policing which HMICFRS should take into account in its effectiveness, efficiency and legitimacy inspections?
  2. Do the proposed thematic inspections of counter-terrorism, older people in the criminal justice system, cyber-crime, child protection and crime data integrity cover areas that are of most concern to you at the moment?
  3. How else could HMICFRS adapt the way in which it acquires information, to take account of current circumstances and risks to public safety?
