Her Majesty's Inspector of Constabulary

Her Majesty’s Inspector of Constabulary to be heard.


Her Majesty’s Inspector of Constabulary (HMIC) was heard, and the following points were made.


·         HMIC noted the positive performance of the Force in the recent PEEL inspection.


·         The Chairman noted that he was writing to the Home Office that day to update the relevant Minister regarding the Force’s response to the PEEL inspection.


·         In response to a question, HMIC and the Commissioner noted that City Schools within the PEEL inspection report were interpreted to mean those within the Square Mile, rather than the Authority’s wider Family of City Schools which included independent schools and academies that were situated outside the Square Mile.


·         In response to a question, HMIC noted that, from an inspection perspective, he did not want to see Forces overemphasising outcomes. HMICFRS was on hand to give advice to Forces to ensure alignment between Authorities, Forces, and HMICFRS.
