HMICFRS Inspection Reports

 

 

 

 

The PCC has a statutory duty to comment on reports published by HMICFRS about Sussex Police. To make these easily accessible and to keep the public fully informed about any responses the PCC has made to HMICFRS, a copy of the response will be published below, together with links to the relevant report.  

This HMIC report examines all 43 police forces in England and Wales. It looks at three principal aspects of day-to-day policing:

  • the prevention of crime;
  • how crime is investigated and offenders are brought to justice;
  • and freeing up and using police time more efficiently (which includes the use of modern technology).

The report merges three complementary inspections into a single assessment. The national report can be viewed here. The Sussex letter can be viewed here.

In September 2013, HMIC was commissioned by the Home Secretary to inspect the response of the police forces in England and Wales to domestic violence and abuse.   The report examines the effectiveness of the police service's approach to domestic violence and abuse, focuses on the outcomes for victims and identifies whether the risks to victims of domestic violence and abuse are adequately managed. The national report can be viewed here. The Sussex report can be viewed here.

This report examines how effectively and fairly the police service is using the powers of Stop and Search in the fight against crime, whether the powers are being used tactically as part of evidence-based practice and how the powers can be used in a way that builds the public's trust in the police.

This report shows the findings of the third year of valuing the police inspections, with data collected and forces inspected between March 2013 and June 2013.   HMIC’s overall assessment for Sussex is good and shows that the force is on track to meet the challenge of this comprehensive savings review.

This consultation seeks views on HMIC’s proposed inspection programme for 2013/2014. The consultation can be viewed here.

PCC's Response

Whilst broadly supportive of the proposed inspections the Commissioner would like to see the area of Mental Health and Custody included and, in particular, the use of the police as a place of safety and the role of other agencies.

This report is HMIC's response to the Home Secretary’s commission of 07 November 2012, which asked HMIC to conduct a review to assess the police knowledge of and response to the historical allegations made against the late Jimmy Savile.

The HMIC report “Mistakes were made”: HMIC’s review into allegations and intelligence material concerning Jimmy Savile between 1964 and 2012 can be viewed here. The information held by Sussex is the subject of section 7 of the report, and is also discussed in the executive summary.
