PEEL: Police leadership 2017
In PEEL 2017 (our annual all-force assessment), leadership was assessed at a force level as part of the efficiency and legitimacy reports (published in autumn 2017), and effectiveness reports (to be published in spring 2018). This report pulls together the findings on leadership from these inspections, and provides a national overview.
Leadership, both as a skill and as a way of thinking, is important at every level of policing; it does not only apply at the most senior levels.
Through our inspections, we assessed how forces develop and show good leadership throughout policing, not just whether senior members of the workforce are good leaders.
The leadership assessment focused on the following themes:
- fair and ethical leadership (also known as organisational justice);
- overseeing cultural change – increasing diversity and innovation;
- workforce development; and
- taking effective action.
