Neighbourhood Teams do not investigate all crime that occurs on their ward. If a crime meets a certain threshold of seriousness or complexity then it will becomes the responsibility of the Borough Criminal Investigation Department (CID) teams or Specialised Teams within the MPS.

As a result of pre-LPM modelling work, it was envisaged that Neighbourhood teams would investigate approximately 30% of crime.

MPS systems are not yet unable to fully ascertain the exact number of investigations conducted by Neighbourhood teams as a result of the different Tranche 1 and 2 "go-live" dates.
