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 (www.plymouth.ac.uk) to conduct a two-phase programme of
research. The first phase explored 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). In the second phase, different data collection methods
were piloted in two UK constabularies. This report describes the
approach taken in Phase Two, summarises the findings of this phase and
presents recommendations about how HMICFRS might use the findings
to inform its approach to future inspections.
