West Yorkshire Police officers have been congratulated for their work, after the force received a positive review from HM Inspectorate of Constabulary Fire and Rescue Services
In the latest PEEL (police effectiveness, efficiency and legitimacy) assessment, West Yorkshire Police was graded “outstanding” in four key areas.
The report, released on 24 November, graded the force top in areas including engaging with and treating the public with fairness and respect; preventing crime and anti-social behaviour; disrupting serious and organised crime; and strategic planning, organisational management and value for money.
It was rated “good” in responding to the public; protecting vulnerable people; managing offenders and suspects; and building, supporting and protecting the workforce.
It received “adequate” scores for investigating crime and providing a service to victims of crime.
PEEL reports examine efficiency, effectiveness and legitimacy. The force was already graded as outstanding for the way it records crime (Crime Data Integrity) in a previous inspection.
Brian Booth, Chairman of West Yorkshire Police Federation, said: “Our colleagues continue to work hard and provide an excellent level of service to the public, despite the overwhelming pressures on policing.”
