PCC welcomes positive HMIC report

Norfolk Police has been judged one of the top performing forces in the country by HM Inspectorate of Constabulary.

With an overall ‘good' grading in the 2016 PEEL* inspections into effectiveness, which looks at how well the force keeps people safe and reduces crime; the Constabulary was also awarded, an outstanding grade for how effective it is at preventing crime, tackling anti-social behaviour and keeping people safe for the second year running.

Responding to the report Lorne Green, Police and Crime Commissioner for Norfolk, said: “I welcome this thorough report by HMIC. This is a very positive report for our constabulary and I hope the people of Norfolk are reassured by the fact they have a force performing at such a high level. This is the latest in a line of good reports and is the result of a great deal of hard work and commitment by all staff and on behalf of the people of Norfolk I would like to thank them all.

“There is, of course, work still to do and I and my office will continue to offer robust scrutiny and hold the force to account.”

The next Police Accountability Forum (PAF) is due to take place in Cromer on Tuesday 28 March 2017.

*The HMIC PEEL inspections are a national benchmarking exercise to judge how efficient police forces are at keeping people safe and reducing crime.
