Vetting, misconduct and misogyny in the police service: review of progress
Following the publication of our report into vetting, misconduct and misogyny in the police service, the Home Secretary asked HMICFRS to provide an urgent update on the progress police forces in England and Wales have made.
On 11 May 2023, Matt Parr, His Majesty’s Inspector of Constabulary, wrote to the Home Secretary and addressed the police service’s progress against the 43 recommendations and 5 areas for improvement HMICFRS made in the report.
HMI Parr’s letter summarised our main findings and provided an annex with additional detail, including an explanation of the work we have done to verify police force self-assessments.
