Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire & Rescue Services (HMICFRS) Inspection report from 2018/19 covers numerous areas under the headings of Effectiveness, Efficiency and People. We have analysed the comments and any evidence and identified what we are already doing or are planning to do to improve in those areas.
