PEEL Assessments 2021/22

PEEL (police effectiveness, efficiency and legitimacy) is our regular assessment of police forces in England and Wales. We use inspection findings, analysis and our professional judgment to assess how good forces are in several areas of policing. Most of these areas are then graded as outstanding, good, adequate, requires improvement or inadequate.

In the table below you can see the forces we have reported on in the 2021/22 PEEL cycle, with an overview of how they performed. Choose a force to read its full report.

A pale grey box means the force has not yet been inspected on this subject. A dark grey means the force has been inspected but was not given a grade.
