Answer for Sanctioned detection rate, Camden

Answered By: 
The Mayor

I am pleased to note that the sanction detection rate in Camden has increased in the last year, up by 1.1% from 20.3% to 21.4%.

There has been an uplift of staff within CID to provide resilience and improve productivity. 

The crime picture is reviewed daily to highlight detection opportunities. New Detective Constables to the borough are posted to Local Policing Teams to allow opportunities to obtain sanction detections through low level crime before dealing with more complex ones. 

All officers receive training four times a year and experienced CID officers have been posted to response and neighbourhood teams to co-ordinate investigations.
