An inspection of the eastern regional response to serious and organised crime
As part of our police effectiveness, efficiency and legitimacy (PEEL) inspections, we inspected how well police forces tackle serious and organised crime (SOC).
In 2022, we changed how we inspect this aspect of policing. We now incorporate inspections of the ten regions of England and Wales, as well as the nine regional organised crime units (ROCUs) and 43 police forces, within PEEL inspections.
This report includes sections on the following:
- Regional findings – a summary of inspection evidence.
- The ROCU and seven forces – a summary of the findings from our inspection, with a graded judgment.
The forces in this report are Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire. Essex, Hertfordshire, Kent, Norfolk and Suffolk.
