HMICFRS response to consultation on 'Policing inspection programme and framework commencing April 2022'
We recently consulted on our proposed programme for policing inspections for the 3 years from April 2022. The purpose of this consultation was to make sure we continue to focus our inspection work on what matters most to the public. It asked for views on whether we included the right themes and areas of policing. In particular, we sought responses to the following:
Question 1: Do the proposed thematic inspections cover the areas that are of most concern to you at the moment? Which do you believe are of greatest importance or urgency?
Question 2: Are there any significant new or emerging problems in policing that HMICFRS should consider when it inspects individual police forces?
Question 3: How else could HMICFRS adapt the way in which it acquires information to take account of current circumstances and risks to public safety?
We received 44 responses:
- 20 from police forces;
- 7 from police and crime commissioners;
- 7 from other organisations; and
- 10 from members of the public.
