This report is a national thematic which highlights HMIC’s findings following an onsite inspection of 10 forces, which did not include Lancashire Constabulary. Whilst there are no specific recommendations for the Force, there are a number of recommendations which are generic to all forces. We will consider each of these and will and take the necessary action to ensure relevant issues are addressed. Delivery of the Force’s response will be monitored through governance arrangements exercised by the Deputy Chief Constable.
