PCC responds to inspection report on crime data integrity
Norfolk's Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC), Lorne Green, has responded to a report published today by Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire & Rescue Services (HMICFRS) following its inspection of Norfolk Constabulary's Crime Data Integrity.
The PCC said: “I have noted with concern the findings of HMICFRS that, despite making improvements since its last inspection, Norfolk Constabulary’s crime recording arrangements are not yet to the required standard.
“On behalf of the public, I will be seeking assurance that the necessary improvements are being made so that we have crime data in which victims and the community can have confidence.
“I will be asking the Chief Constable to update me on the plans to address this at the next Police Accountability Forum on 28 January – a meeting which the Norfolk public is welcome to attend – and I will be closely monitoring progress over the coming months.”
