The MPS would welcome invitations to join productive working groups seeking to improve the efficiency and quality assurance of collision investigations. The current performance data concentrates on traditional crime investigation outcomes, which is not always appropriate.

The link with community confidence is recognised and how the provision of information may contribute to this; however this must be balanced against the legal constraints associated with such investigations.
