Question for Home Office

UIN HL5895, tabled on 18 June 2020

To ask Her Majesty's Government how many of the annual reviews by Police and Crime Commissioners include significant sections dealing with the effectiveness of their forces’ road policing obligations; and what plans they have to make inclusion of roads policing in those annual reviews mandatory.

The government have received a draft report of Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire and Rescue Services (HMICFRS) on roads policing. The date for publication will be decided by HMICFRS.

The HMICFRS consultation on its proposals for a new framework for future PEEL inspections is currently suspended due to the Covid-19 pandemic. We will respond to these proposals as and when the consultation process is resumed.

Police and Crime Commissioners (PCCs) are responsible for the totality of policing within their force area. This includes ensuring the Chief Constable delivers an effective and efficient police service to meet the priorities of the local community. PCCs are required to set out their strategic objectives in a Police and Crime Plan following consultation with the public and local partners.
