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”.

    The more I have read and heard about the former Chief Constable’s performance, the more convinced I’ve become that his ‘forced resignation’ didn’t come a moment too soon.

    So, why was Crompton being supported by the incredibly arrogant Winsor (the Chief Inspector of Police) in his judicial review proceedings?

    Only three explanations – or a combination of them – stand up:
    (1) Winsor’s embarrassment that his previous inspection report had simply failed to identify the nature and extent of Crompton’s failings – all revealed in the peer reports commissioned by the PCC and the acting chief constable immediately after Crompton’s departure;
    (2) Winsor wants himself to be the only arbiter as to whether a chief constable should be sacked or not;
    (3) Winsor has long wanted police force amalgamations and has wanted a S Yorks police force failure as a means to progress this. He sees an effective PPC and an effective chief constable as a barrier to his ambition.
