PEEL: police efficiency 2017 - Greater Manchester Police

Published on: 9 November 2017

Publication types: Efficiency and PEEL

Police Forces: Greater Manchester


As in PEEL efficiency 2016, this inspection:

  • examined how well forces understand the demand for their service, how well they match their resources to that demand, and how well they are planning to meet future demand; and
  • provides an assessment of their efficiency.

After the terrorist attack in Manchester on 22 May 2017, HMICFRS agreed with Greater Manchester Police that we would not undertake a full inspection. The report below sets out the findings of our limited inspection of the force, but no graded judgment has been made.

The efficiency reports will be followed by reports on legitimacy in December 2017 and effectiveness in early 2018, which together make up the three pillars of the annual PEEL assessment.
