In 2019, His Excellency, The Governor of St Helena, Ascension and Tristan da Cunha invited HMICFRS to inspect the St Helena Police Service. In March 2020, we carried out the fieldwork.

Our terms of reference for this inspection were to inspect:

  • the force’s arrangements;
  • policies and practice for armed policing;
  • detention and custody;
  • investigation and victim care/support; and
  • neighbourhood and community policing, public engagement and communication.

Our report makes 14 recommendations and highlights 22 areas for improvement.
