Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire and Rescue Services has published an inspection of roads policing across English and Welsh forces.
Responding to its findings the National Police Chiefs’ Council lead for roads policing, Chief Constable Anthony Bangham, said:
“This is a welcome report from HMICFRS which links in with the already established Home Office, Department for Transport and National Police Chiefs’ Council joint review into roads policing.
“We recognise the important role policing plays in keeping our roads safe and cutting casualties. Forces are working hard to target those who use our roads dangerously or to commit crime but we know there is more to do.
“The report rightly identifies the importance of other organisations playing their part and we will continue to work towards a truly joined up effort.
“We will carefully consider the recommendations made by HMICFRS.”
