HMICFRS crime data integrity re-inspection

Force graded as good

Devon and Cornwall Police graded as ‘good’ following Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire & Rescue services (HMICFRS) crime data integrity re-inspection.

The HMICFRS have today, Tuesday 10 April 2018, published its report regarding the force’s crime data integrity re-inspection. The force has been graded as ‘good’ overall acknowledging a substantial improvement made throughout the force in crime-recording accuracy and timeliness.

ACC Debbie Marsden said: “This is a direct result of the hard work and commitment from officers and staff across the force to improve standards. The report also highlighted an improved service to the victims of crime and local communities; a priority shared by all of our officers, staff and partners.

“A particularly pleasing result is an area we were graded as ‘outstanding’ within the report in regards to the leadership and culture within the force, acknowledging that officers are ‘placing the needs of the victim at the heart of their crime recording decisions’ and that the service we provide to victims of sexual offences has improved. Recording crime the right way is important as is ensuring that we have integrity in our data systems and how they are used.

“The report states that such improvements are testament to the leadership demonstrated by the force which has worked hard to implement sustainable improvements.

“It is my mission that all of my officers and staff are working to detect and prevent harm, protecting the vulnerable and working with our communities to make them safer. Today’s HMICFRS re-inspection report suggests that this is being done.

“As a force we continue to look at the areas we can improve and how we can use this learning to carry on improving the service we give to victims and the public.”
