In order to develop its approach to assessing leadership within the police forces
it inspects, Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire and Rescue
Services (HMICFRS) commissioned the University of Plymouth
( to explore how such assessment is done in policing
institutions in the US, Australia and Scandinavia as well as comparable
institutions in the UK (the Ministry of Defence (MOD), Ofsted, Care Quality
Commission (CQC), and Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Prisons (HMIP)). This
report presents the emerging findings from Phase One of the study, which
involved a review of the literature and interviews to address two key questions:
 How do other UK based organisations assess leadership?
Organisations of interest include Ofsted, CQC, MoD, and HMIP; and
 How do other police authorities inspect leadership? Authorities of
interest include Canada, United States, Australia and Scandinavia.
