Inspectorate recognises progress made on volume crime and police bail


Inspectorate recognises progress made on volume crime and police bail

30/07/2009
A follow-up review published today of an inspection into the handling of volume crime and the use of police bail has welcomed progress made by the PSNI to implement recommendations made by the Inspectorate.  The follow-up review revealed that 90% of the recommendations which were within the PSNI’s ability to deliver had been achieved. View report. View press release.

Inspectors found that steps had been taken to ensure police officers were better equipped with the basic investigative stills required to investigate volume crime and that scientific support services were being used more effectively in the investigation and detection of crimes such as burglary, assault, theft and criminal damage.
 
CJI Inspectors were concerned that plans to introduce a new call management system had been put on hold.  They have reiterated the importance of having in place an effective, efficient call management system and have given a commitment to keep this issue under review in future inspections.
