Our work

HMICFRS visits police forces, fire & rescue services, and other organisations in England, Wales, Northern Ireland and further afield, carrying out inspections or reviews. We also look at critical national issues and themes, across the police service or fire & rescue services.

In this section you can browse by category or subject to find out more about our work. If you are looking for a particular report, or for information and reports on your local police force or fire & rescue service, use the search function on the publications page, and filter your results.

If you can’t find what you’re looking for please email contacthmicfrs@hmicfrs.gov.uk with your request and we will help.
