2017 PEEL police legitimacy inspection

As in PEEL legitimacy 2016, this inspection looked at the extent to which:

  • forces treat people with fairness and respect;
  • they ensure their workforces act ethically and lawfully; and
  • those workforces feel they have been treated with fairness and respect by the forces.

This report sets out the findings for Lincolnshire Police.

HMICFRS also assessed legitimacy on a national level, drawing out overarching themes which are set out in the national overview.

The legitimacy reports will be followed by effectiveness reports in early 2018. These, together with efficiency reports published in November 2017, make up the three pillars of the annual PEEL assessment.
