Suffolk Constabulary, along with all police forces across the country, is the subject of regular inspections to ensure that it offers local communities a high quality policing service which keeps people safe.

Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary (HMIC) independently assesses police forces and policing across the full range of activities from neighbourhood policing to serious crime and the fight against terrorism.

The Inspectorate’s aim is to drive improvements in the service – and its reports allow the public to compare the performance of Suffolk Constabulary with other forces, as well as finding out how the force is improving over time.

One of the Inspectorate’s key pieces of work is the annual programme of force inspections, known as the PEEL (police effectiveness, efficiency and legitimacy) assessments.

The latest information on the PEEL assessment for Suffolk Constabulary is published here.
