HMIC rates North Yorkshire Police ‘good’ for keeping people safe and reducing crime

North Yorkshire Police has been recognised as ‘good’ by the independent police watchdog in an assessment of how well the force keeps people safe and reduces crime.

The rating has been given by Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary (HMIC), following their annual inspection of police force legitimacy. In response to the HMIC’s PEEL report today, North Yorkshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner Julia Mulligan said:

“Once again, HMIC has rated North Yorkshire Police as ‘good’ at keeping people safe and reducing crime. North Yorkshire is one of the safest places in England and HMIC’s report is a clear indication that local residents can be confident that their force is well run and delivers good value for money.

“It is also very welcome news that this independent report has identified that police officers in North Yorkshire behave ethically and lawfully.

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank officers, PCSOs, staff and volunteers for their dedication and professionalism in providing such a good service in North Yorkshire.”
