Statement following HMICFRS announcement

Nottinghamshire Police and Crime Commissioner Caroline Henry.

Nottinghamshire Police and Crime Commissioner Caroline Henry said: “I am obviously disappointed that Nottinghamshire Police is being placed under enhanced monitoring.  However, I welcome the opportunity this process will provide the Force to focus on the areas of concern and continue their immediate actions to put things right.

“As Police and Crime Commissioner, it is my duty to hold Nottinghamshire Police to account on behalf of the public and ensure we have the best policing service possible.

“HMICFRS performs an important and independent assessment role and this robust enhanced monitoring process will support our broader arrangements to ensure continuous improvement in the policing service that the people of Nottinghamshire should expect.

“The effective supervision of investigations and ensuring the right support for victims are both vitally important to providing an effective policing service. Since HMICFRS raised their concerns with me, I have held urgent discussions with the Chief Constable and her team. I have sought assurances about the action being taken and the plans the Chief Constable has for improvements.

“I was assured to learn that the Force had already taken immediate action.  This should provide Nottinghamshire’s communities with confidence that the Force takes these concerns very seriously and is committed to making swift improvements.

“I am determined to support and oversee the Force’s progress with addressing all HMICFRS’ recommendations and have asked for weekly updates from the Chief Constable. I am confident Nottinghamshire Police will emerge a much stronger organisation as a result of the ‘engage’ process.”
