Police integrity and corruption force reports

Summary

During a previous HMIC inspection in 2011, we found that few police forces were actively aware of, or were managing, issues of police integrity. We also found a wide variation in levels of understanding of the boundaries in police relationships with others, including the media.

In a subsequent inspection in 2012, while many forces had made some progress, particularly in managing threats to integrity, more needed to be done. The pace of change also needed to increase, not least to demonstrate to the public that the police service was serious about managing integrity issues.

This inspection was designed to focus on the arrangements in place to ensure those working in police forces act with integrity. Specifically, we looked at four principal areas:

  • What progress has been made on managing professional and personal relationships since our revisit in 2012?
  • What progress has the force made in communicating and embedding ethical and professional behaviour to all staff?
  • How well does the force proactively look for, and effectively challenge and investigate misconduct and unprofessional behaviour?
  • How well does the force prevent, identify and investigate corruption?

Each report makes recommendations for its relevant police force about the next steps which may be taken to improve further its policies and practices around integrity.
