Part of: Protecting people from violence and abuse

HMICFRS carried out a thematic inspection of homicide prevention, jointly supported by the National Police Chiefs’ Council, the College of Policing and the Independent Office for Police Conduct.

In this inspection, we examined:

  1. how effectively forces understand the pattern of homicide in their areas, including the underlying causes and risks; and
  2. how effectively forces contribute to the prevention of homicides, including how they use the homicide prevention framework.
