This document provides details of our proposed programme of policing inspections for 2021/22.

Types of inspection in 2021/22 comprise of:

It asks for your views on whether we cover the right themes and areas of policing. In particular, we are seeking your responses to the following consultation questions:

  1. Do these proposed thematic inspections cover those areas that are of most concern to you at the moment?
  2. Are there any significant new or emerging problems in policing that HMICFRS should take into account in its inspection activity?
  3. How else could HMICFRS adapt the way in which it acquires information to take account of current circumstances and risks to public safety?
