Nottinghamshire Police face ‘special measures’ as Chief has ‘no intention of stepping down’

The full report by HMICFRS inspectors isn’t due to be published until later this year.


Nottinghamshire Police has been issued with what’s described as two accelerated causes for concern.

The first one was about management of investigations and how that was done within the force, including the IT systems they used and secondly the overall governance and management of the organisation.

It follows months of scrutiny for the force following the sentencing of Valdo Calocane in the wake of the Nottingham attacks last summer, which left three people dead.

Inspectors have categorically ruled out any link between that and the force being put into special measures.

That matter is being investigated separately by the independent Office for Police Conduct. But the development has nonetheless been welcomed by the victims families who tell us they hope it results in real change.


Kate Meynell has been chief constable of Nottinghamshire Police since December 2022.

She said she’s already implemented improvements and has no intention of stepping down.

‘ It makes me more determined.’ she said.
