Derbyshire – National child protection re‑inspection

Published on: 21 October 2022

Publication types: Child protection

Police Forces: Derbyshire

This report is a summary of the findings of our re-inspection of police child protection services in Derbyshire, which took place in May 2022.

We initially inspected Derbyshire Constabulary’s child protection services in May 2021 and published our report in November 2021.

We made 12 recommendations to help the force improve its child protection services.

In this inspection we examined the constabulary’s progress against our recommendations. We considered the effectiveness of the police’s decisions at each stage of their interactions with or for children. This was from initial contact through to the investigation of offences against them. We also scrutinised how the force treated children in custody. And we assessed how the force is structured, led and governed, in relation to its child protection services.
