HMIC Publish 'Valuing the Police: Preparedness Inspection' Report

21st July 2011

Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Constabulary (HMIC) has been heavily involved in monitoring the Service's reaction and preparedness for cutting crime while reducing costs.

As part of this, in Spring 2011 an inspection was carried out of all 43 forces and authorities in England and Wales, to assess: how they are planning to meet the financial challenge; and what the impact will be on the service they provide to the public. This report, 'Valuing the Police: Preparedness Inspection' (English) (Cymraeg), summarises the findings for Gwent Police Authority and Gwent Police.
