PEEL spotlight report: Emerging themes from the second group of 2018/19 PEEL inspections

Summary

This report gives an overview of the emerging themes from the second group of 2018/19 PEEL (police effectiveness, efficiency and legitimacy) inspections. These themes are based on findings from 15 force reports: the 14 forces we inspected in the second group of inspections and Cleveland Police, which we inspected in the third group.

PEEL inspections

PEEL is our annual assessment of police forces in England and Wales. We assess forces to find out:

  • how effective they are at preventing and investigating crime, protecting vulnerable people and tackling serious organised crime;
  • how efficiently they manage demand and plan for the future; and
  • how legitimately they treat the public, how ethically they behave, and how they treat their workforce.

We publish our reports throughout the year. The remaining 14 police forces in England and Wales will be covered in the final group of reports.
