The Chief Constable’s annual report for 2015-16 highlights the many successes achieved by the police and underlines the drive to create a culture of continuous improvement within the organisation.
- The Chief Constable says: ‘This suggests that victims feel sufficiently confident to come forward and place their trust in us.
- The Constabulary is maintaining a strong focus on proactive work to combat the importation of drugs and is also striving to meet international challenges in respect of financial crime and money laundering, cybercrime and the protection of our borders.
- Overall, the annual report paints a positive picture of the Constabulary as a model public service with ‘a proud, dedicated workforce that is driven by a deeply embedded set of values and a shared desire to keep the Isle of Man as safe as possible.’
- In addition to achieving the lowest number of recorded crimes for more than 45 years, the Isle of Man Constabulary recently became the first police force in the world to attain the Investors in People Champion status.
- On a positive note, the report says the greater use of technology will have a hugely beneficial impact on policing and will improve the service provided to the public.
The Chief Constable said: ‘The Constabulary is not perfect, but I believe the Island should be proud of what it does, how it goes about its work and how it is creating a culture of continuous improvement”.
