The Police and Crime Commissioner has a duty in law to comment on any HMICFRS report which includes information about Humberside Police. He must send a copy of his published comments to the Home Secretary and His Majesty's Inspector.
We want to keep the public fully informed. Below is a link to the HMICFRS reports, our responses and the Home Secretary's response where provided.
HMICFRS - Their Approach to Inspection
His Majesty's Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire and Rescue Services (HMICFRS) assesses police force performance in England and Wales. Their programme of inspections, or PEEL (Police Efficiency, Effectiveness and Legitimacy) assessments, assess how well each of the 43 forces in England and Wales:
- Provides value for money (Efficiency)
- Cuts crime (Effectiveness); and
- Provides a service that is fair and treats people properly (Legitimacy)
- Focuses on vulnerability
Each force has been assessed against these themes, and given one of four ratings for each theme:
- Requires Improvement; or
The aim of the assessments is to allow the public to see clearly the performance of their local force and direction of travel.
HMICFRS has published the results of these assessments in a user-friendly format, making it easy for the public to tell at a glance how well their local force is performing and, over time, whether it is improving or deteriorating. The most recent PEEL Assessment was published in November 2022 in which Humberside Police were congratulated for outstanding performance. You can read the news release on that inspection HERE.
