Observations on the third generation of force management statements
A force management statement (FMS) is a self-assessment that chief constables (and London equivalents) prepare and submit to Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire & Rescue Services (HMICFRS) each year.
These are the observations of the FMS steering group on the third round of FMSs. Police forces sent us their statements by the end of May 2021.
The steering group is made up of HMICFRS, the National Police Chiefs Council, the College of Policing, the Association of Police and Crime Commissioners, the Home Office, and other parties interested in the development of FMSs.
