Inspectors tell two Yorkshire police forces they ‘must do better’

TWO Yorkshire police forces are among eight nationally which have been told by inspectors they need to improve.

South Yorkshire Police and Humberside Police have been judged as requiring improvement in the latest efficiency inspection by Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary.

North Yorkshire and West Yorkshire were both deemed to be “good” by inspectors who examined the extent to which forces keep people safe and reduce crime.

  1. Two years of Alan Billings blathering on about ‘improvements’ and ‘efficiency’, spending money on assistants/advisors and what happened? HMIC finds SYP is still below par is what’s happened.
    It should not take two years to improve operational efficiency. You either step up to the plate or do the decent thing and collect your gift wrapped P45 and sail into the sunset with your taxpayer funded pension. (See Shaun Wright)

    We cannot blame individual Police Officers for the faults with SYP when they are not managed and directed properly, that is the responsibility of the Ch.Const. and the PCC.

    The role of the PCC’s is to be the voice of the people and hold the police to account. They are responsible for the totality of policing. Under the terms of the Police Reform and Social Responsibility Act 2011, PCC’s must: secure an efficient and effective police for their area;
    appoint the Chief Constable, hold them to account for running the force, and if necessary dismiss them;
    set the police and crime objectives for their area through a police and crime plan;
    set the force budget and determine the precept;
    contribute to the national and international policing capabilities set out by the Home Secretary; and bring together community safety and criminal justice partners, to make sure local priorities are joined up.

    What part of ‘secure an efficient and effective police for their area’ does Billings fail to understand?
