Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Constabularies and Fire & Rescue Service (HMICFRS) are commissioned by the Home Secretary to undertake inspections of police forces and fire and rescue services.

HMICFRS (previously known as Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Constabulary or HMIC) aims to provide authoritative information to allow the public to compare the performance of their force against others, and to drive improvements in the service to the public.HMICFRS logo

HMICFRS is independent of the Government and the police.

Since 2018, HMICFRS has issued a single report to forces, PCCs and the public with gradings for force performance in those areas inspected.

These integrated PEEL inspection reports are published on the HMICFRS website. In 2020/21, HMICFRS published a new police inspection programme and framework. As part of this, they have moved to a two-year inspection and reporting cycle and will publish new PEEL force performance reports between late summer 2021 and end March 2023. Merseyside are awaiting their report, which is anticipated to be released in the summer.

Section 55(5) of the 1996 Police Act requires all Police and Crime Commissioner to prepare comments on any published HMICFRS (previously known as Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Constabulary or HMIC) reports that relate to their force, to forward these to the Home Office and then publish in the manner they see fit.
