HMICFRS Reports

In the Summer of 2017, HMIC took on inspections of England’s Fire & Rescue Services, assessing and reporting on their efficiency, effectiveness and leadership. To reflect this new role, the name changed from Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary (HMIC) to Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire & Rescue Service (HMICFRS).

The Police and Crime Commissioner has a duty in law to comment on any HMICFRS report which includes information about Nottinghamshire Police.  A copy of those comments is sent to the Home Secretary.

The HMICFRS website contains all their publications

Reports can be found below, together with the relevant reponses where required:-

PEEL: Police efficiency (including leadership) 2017

As with all public services, the police service must operate in a way that makes the most of its available resources. To do this, police forces must understand what their demand is – by which we mean what work they can reasonably predict they will have on any given day – and ensure that they have the resources they need, in the right place, to meet that demand. To stay efficient they must have good, realistic and evidence-based plans for the future. Our efficiency inspection assessed all of these areas during 2017.

As part of the 2017 inspection, we also integrated aspects of leadership into our assessment of efficiency, as the two areas are closely linked. We assessed how police leaders are driving innovation in policing, within their own forces and further afield. We also inspected how well forces are planning for the future with regards to their leadership.

Stolen freedom: the policing response to modern slavery and human trafficking

On 28 July 2016, the Home Secretary commissioned Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire & Rescue Services to inspect the police’s response to the implementation of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 in England and Wales.

The inspection took place between November 2016 and March 2017 and adopted a wide-ranging methodology that included:

  • examination of data and self-assessments from all 43 forces in England and Wales;
  • fieldwork in ten forces, four regional organised crime units and the National Crime Agency; and
  • interviews with national leads and experts.

PEEL: Police effectiveness 2016 - Nottinghamshire Police

As part of our annual inspections of police effectiveness, efficiency and legitimacy (PEEL), Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary (HMIC) assesses the effectiveness of police forces across England and Wales. 

An effective police force is one which keeps people safe and reduces crime. These are the most important responsibilities for a police force, and the principal measures by which the public judge the performance of their force and policing as a whole.

PEEL: Police leadership 2016 - Nottinghamshire Police

As part of its annual inspections of police effectiveness, efficiency, legitimacy and leadership (PEEL), Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary (HMIC) assesses the leadership of police forces across England and Wales.  

Police leadership is crucial in enabling a force to be effective, efficient and legitimate. The inspection is focused on how a force understands, develops and displays leadership through its organisational development and is based on the recent ‘Guiding Principles’ developed by the National Police Chiefs’ Council, the College of Policing and HMIC.

PEEL: Police legitimacy 2016 - Nottinghamshire Police

As part of its annual inspections of police effectiveness, efficiency, legitimacy and leadership (PEEL), Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary (HMIC) assesses the legitimacy of police forces across England and Wales.

Police legitimacy – a concept that is well established in the UK as ‘policing by consent’ – is crucial in a democratic society. The police have powers to act in ways that would be considered illegal by any other member of the public (for example, by using force or depriving people of their liberty). It is therefore vital that they use these powers fairly, and that they treat people with respect in the course of their duties.

PEEL: Police efficiency 2016 - Nottinghamshire Police

As part of its annual inspections into police effectiveness, efficiency and legitimacy (PEEL), HMIC assesses the efficiency of police forces across England and Wales.

Forces need to continue to make efficiencies and invest resources wisely in order to maintain a focus on reducing crime and keeping their communities safe. HMIC considers that a police force is efficient if it is making the best use of its resources to provide policing services that meet expectation and follow public priorities, and if it is planning and investing wisely for the future.

Missing Children: who cares? The police response to missing and absent children

Each year thousands of children go missing from their homes. Although the majority of them return home or are found soon after, all children who go missing are potentially at risk of harm, and a significant number, because of their circumstances, will face the risk of sexual, criminal or economic exploitation.

Responding to missing incidents places a high demand on police time, but the consequences of not investigating cases can be extremely serious, leaving some children at risk of exploitation and/or significant harm.

PEEL: Police effectiveness 2015 - Nottinghamshire Police

As part of its annual inspections into police effectiveness, efficiency and legitimacy (PEEL), HMIC’s effectiveness programme assessed how effective the force is at keeping people safe and reducing crime and anti-social behaviour.

PEEL: Police legitimacy 2015 - Nottinghamshire Police

As part of its annual inspections into police effectiveness, efficiency and legitimacy (PEEL), HMIC’s legitimacy programme assessed how legitimate the force is at keeping people safe and reducing crime. The inspection focused on whether a force was consistently behaving in a way that is fair, reasonable, effective and lawful, and if it has the consent of the public. HMIC assessed legitimacy at a force level, as well as drawing out overarching themes on a national level which are set out in the national overview.

PEEL: Police effectiveness 2015 (Vulnerability) - Nottinghamshire Police

As part of its annual inspections into police effectiveness, efficiency and legitimacy (PEEL), HMIC’s effectiveness programme assessed how well forces keep people safe and reduce crime. Within this programme, HMIC’s vulnerability inspection examined the overall question, ‘How effective are forces at protecting from harm those who are vulnerable, and supporting victims?’. We have considered in depth how forces respond to and support missing and absent children and victims of domestic abuse, and assessed how well prepared forces are to respond to and safeguard children at risk of sexual exploitation.

The remaining effectiveness findings and the legitimacy report will be published in Spring 2016. The efficiency inspection was published on 20 October 2015.

Increasingly everyone's business: A progress report on the police response to domestic abuse

In March 2014, HMIC published Everyone’s business: Improving the police response to domestic abuse. This report found significant weaknesses in the service provided to victims of domestic abuse, and made a series of recommendations aimed at helping forces to improve.

Between June and August 2015, as part of its PEEL: Effectiveness inspection programme, HMIC visited every police force in England and Wales to assess the progress they had made in responding to and protecting victims of domestic abuse since ‘Everyone’s business’ came out.
