HMIC's Report on Cheshire Constabulary

Home » Newsroom » Cheshire Constabulary

You may remember in the autumn Cheshire Constabulary became one of only a handful of forces across the county to achieve an 'outstanding' rating for efficiency from Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Constabulary (HMIC), the independent watchdog that assesses policing.

Over the course of the last two weeks HMIC have also rated the Constabulary as 'good' for two other areas of its work: legitimacy and effectiveness.

Even within these 'goods' there have been outstanding ratings for both engaging and treating people fairly, and preventing crime and anti-social behaviour, and keeping people safe.

When I talk to the public these things really matter to you and in Cheshire the police are outstanding at them.

The Constabulary does have a couple of areas needing improvement and having spoken to the Chief Constable I am confident that he has been, and is, working hard to remedy these so Cheshire Constabulary can achieve outstanding ratings across the board.

The results for 2015 are a fantastic achievement and show that the Constabulary is heading in the right direction. As I said in a private message to officers and staff this week everyone in the Constabulary has done themselves, the Chief Constable and me proud but most importantly they've done you, the public of Cheshire, proud.

These independent ratings are evidence that you now have one of the very best police forces in the country and I am certain that we have the best officers, staff, special constabulary and volunteers around. They do a tremendous job in keeping us safe and I would once again like to put on record my thanks for all their hard-work and dedication.
