HMICFRS rates Merseyside Police 'Good' in Peel Report

HER Majesty's Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire and Rescue Services (HMICFRS) undertakes annual inspections of all forces in England and Wales into Police effectiveness, efficiency and legitimacy (PEEL). HMICFRS has published the PEEL Efficiency 2017 Inspection report for Merseyside Police. This report considers the extent to which the force is making best use of its resources to ensure it is efficient at keeping people safe and reducing crime, how well the force understands demand and how well it uses its resources and plans for the future. HM Inspector of Constabulary Mike Cunningham said the report for Merseyside Police found that:- "Merseyside Police continues to be assessed as 'good' in the way it matches the demand on its service with the skills of its people, and in its financial planning. It has sound financial plans in place and is on track to meet the savings required. Additionally, the Force is doing a good job in developing future leaders and welcomes ideas from across its workforce and ensures these are responded to. In the next year I'd like to see it extend its analysis of staff skills to the entire workforce and continue to promote its response to innovative ideas. Merseyside Police has an up to date and comprehensive assessment of the demand for its services, including measures in place which will help it identify crimes which are frequently under reported. It is adept at using its resources flexibly, especially when planning for major events. The force is in a collaboration which is investing in IT services which will enable efficient information sharing across the three forces; If successful this model should serve as a template to other forces."

In addition to HMIC's overall judgment of Merseyside Police being good, the force was also graded as good at:-

► Understanding the demands for its services.
► How it uses its resources.
► Planning for the future.

Following publication of the Peel Assessment Deputy Chief Constable Carl Foulkes said:- "In every decision we make as a force, we put our communities first and we are fully committed to providing the best possible service we can, despite reductions in Police Officer and staff numbers and continuing funding challenges. In this context, I'm particularly pleased that for the 3rd year running, we have been judged by HMIC as being good overall with regards to the efficiency with which we keep people safe and reduce crime. Our Officers and staff work extremely hard day in day, day out, and the assessment of good overall and across all the categories considered during the inspection is testimony to their hard work and reflective of the Force's commitment to keeping our communities a safe place to live, work and visit."
