The functions of inspectorates are, and should be, the Chief Inspector argues, symbiotically related to the characteristics of the services they inspect. Thus HMIProbation had to change when, in April 2001, the 54 local probation services in England and Wales became the National Probation Service. HMIProbation has developed a new inspection methodology reflecting this. The focus is now less on processes and more on outcomes. Further, if improving the working of the criminal justice system generally is the object, the Chief Inspector maintains that there is a case for there being a single inspectorate covering the police, the Crown Prosecution Service, the criminal courts, and the Probation and Prison Services.
