Serious concerns have been raised about the performance of South Yorkshire Police following a series of inspections. The force has been judged as requiring improvement in its effectiveness, efficiency and legitimacy in fighting crime and keeping people safe.
South Yorkshire Police “acting on report’s criticisms”
SOUTH Yorkshire Police has insisted it has already begun to act on a raft of criticisms highlighted in an annual inspection report.
Michael Cunningham, Her Majesty’s Inspector of Constabulary, said he had “serious concerns” about the force’s performance after it was rated as “requires improvement” in three key areas — its effectiveness, efficiency and legitimacy in fighting crime and keeping people safe.
But a police spokeswoman pointed out the annual report was based on the findings of surveys throughout the past year and the force had “already taken action to address the concerns raised”.
