Cleveland Police 'requires improvement' say inspectors

Cleveland Police 'requires improvement' say inspectors

It notes that the force is now fully compliant with all aspects of the Best Use of Stop and Search (BUSS) something that had been lacking two years ago.

"But, at the end of the day, "good" is good and that is how this latest inspection rated Nottinghamshire Police".

The report recognised Dorset Police's dedication to treating the people it serves with fairness and respect, with officers and staff well trained in how to communicate effectively and use their coercive powers fairly, and only when necessary.

"Forces must be able to explain the reasons for any disparity if they are to enhance the trust and confidence of all communities".

The NPCC said stop-and-search powers were important "with rising knife and gun crime", as well as being a deterrent for people considering carrying out acid attacks.

But when inspectors examined the subset of drugs searches, they found those involving black people were less likely to result in drugs being found compared with those involving white people or other ethnic groups.

But the Inspectorate of Constabulary said many officers were unaware of the guidance and it is now urging forces to encourage officers to not rely on a smell alone.

The force's Police and Crime Commissioner Paddy Tipping said: "This report makes a reassuring read and highlights the progress made over the last twelve months".

Figures show this use of the powers has reduced sharply in recent years.

He added that police were working with the Home Office and the College of Policing to understand why young black men "are disproportionately reflected not only in stop-and-search figures".

Have you been stopped and searched?

Six forces - Northamptonshire Police, Cleveland Police, City of London Police, West Midlands Police, Warwickshire Police and West Mercia Police - were marked as "requires improvement" and none were found to be inadequate.

To what extent do forces treat all the people they serve with fairness and respect?

The commitment to take preventive early action to improve workforce wellbeing was noted, along with a significant financial investment in occupational health services and initiatives to support staff wellbeing.

South Yorkshire Police was found to be "good" at treating people with fairness and respect, and ensuring its workforce behaves ethically and lawfully.

WYP has been rated as "good" in all three areas by the watchdog.

Analysis of new data from England and Wales carried out by the inspectorate revealed drug searches were more accurate on white people (33 percent) than black people (26 percent).

A report published yesterday (TUES) by Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire & Rescue Services (HMICFRS) has graded Dorset Police as "good" overall at keeping people safe and reducing crime.

It analysed more than 8,500 stop and search records.

"The force is doing positive work to make the complaints process accessible and easy for the public to use, and it generally provides timely and meaningful updates to complainants on the progress of their case".
