2018/19 Integrated PEEL Assessment

PEEL is an annual assessment of police forces in England and Wales. Forces are assessed on their effectiveness, efficiency and legitimacy. They are judged as outstanding, good, requires improvement or inadequate on these categories (or pillars) based on inspection findings, analysis and Her Majesty’s Inspectors’ (HMIs) professional judgment across the year.

This is HMICFRS’s fifth PEEL (police effectiveness, efficiency and legitimacy) assessment of Lincolnshire Police. PEEL is designed to give you information about how Lincolnshire is performing in several important areas, in a way that is comparable both across England and Wales, and year on year

The PCC has given a response to this report.

“I am delighted inspectors have recognised the progress being made by the force and that it has been graded good for the majority of measures.

“For one of the lowest funded forces in the UK to achieve such high grades is commendable and shows that the communities of Lincolnshire are served well by a policing family working hard to make the most of the resources it has available to keep them safe.

“Of course, there are still areas that need to be improved upon. Planning for the future and understanding demand are areas for progress and I will be working hard with the chief officer team to develop these capabilities in the months ahead.

“But in the areas that really matter to the public – reducing crime, keeping people safe, investigating crime, protecting the vulnerable and tackling serious and organised crime – the force has been graded as good.

“I, like the inspectors, am encouraged by the progress made over the past year and believe it is a good foundation for continuing improvements in the year ahead.”
