Force management statements correspondence

Published on: 21 March 2018


A force management statement (FMS) is a self-assessment that chief constables (and London equivalents) prepare and give to HMICFRS each year. In October 2017, HMICFRS consulted on the proposed design of the FMSs, and following consideration of the responses, published the template and guidance in March 2018.

Available to download below are the letters sent from HMICFRS to chief constables, police and crime commissioners, and other interested parties, about FMSs.
