Staffordshire Police: PEEL Cause of concern revisit letter
In January 2022, we conducted a victim service assessment as part of our police efficiency, effectiveness and legitimacy inspection of Staffordshire Police. During the inspection we identified two causes of concern, which were that the force:
- was failing to identify and assess vulnerability at first point of contact; and
- wasn’t carrying out effective investigations and didn’t give victims the support they needed.
In December 2022, we revisited the force to review progress against the causes of concern by repeating the victim service assessment.
This letter gives an update on our findings.
