PEEL: Police effectiveness, efficiency and legitimacy 2018/19 – Dorset Police
PEEL is HMICFRS’s annual assessment of police forces in England and Wales. Forces are assessed on their effectiveness, efficiency and legitimacy.
In 2018/19, we adopted an integrated approach to our existing PEEL inspections. Integrated PEEL Assessment (IPA) combines into a single inspection the effectiveness, efficiency and legitimacy areas of PEEL. These areas had previously been inspected separately each year.
This report is structured in four parts:
- Our overall narrative assessment of the force’s 2018/19 performance.
- Our judgments and summaries of how effectively, efficiently and legitimately the force keeps people safe and reduces crime.
- Our judgments and any areas for improvement, causes of concern and notable practice for each component of our inspection.
- Our detailed findings for each component.
This report sets out the findings for Dorset Police.
