Emergency services sector update - March 2019

RSM’s latest emergency services sector briefing provides a useful source of insight into recent developments and publications affecting the sector. 

We delve into a number of publications across the police sector, these include the Home Affairs Committee’s report which looks at the changing demands on policing, Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire & Rescue Services (HMICFRS) reports on policing and mental health and public perceptions of policing. 

Also, in this edition, we look at other recent developments within the sector including the Independent Office for Police Conduct’s three-year plan to improve public confidence in policing and the Home Office’s announcement of increased funding for police. In looking specifically at fire and rescue services, we cover HMICFRS’ report on the first independent inspections into FRSs for 12 years and the latest statistics published by the Home Office on fire prevention and protection. 

We hope you find this update a useful source of insight. If you have any queries, or have any suggestions for topics for future editions, please contact Dan Harris and he will be delighted to help.
