Summary

As in PEEL legitimacy 2015, this inspection looked at:

  • the extent to which forces treat people with fairness and respect;
  • the extent to which they ensure their workforces act ethically and lawfully; and
  • the extent to which those workforces themselves feel they have been treated with fairness and respect by the forces.

This report sets out the findings for West Yorkshire Police.

HMIC also assessed legitimacy on a national level, drawing out overarching themes which are set out in the national overview.

The legitimacy reports will be followed by reports on effectiveness in early 2017. These, together with efficiency reports published in November 2016, make up the three pillars of the annual PEEL assessment.
