Thank you for your response to my question 2016/4612. It is disappointing to learn that the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) is currently unable to provide data about the results of hit and run prosecutions. When will the "extensive new digital systems being introduced in the MPS" be ready to use to address this problem?

The Case Overview and Preparation Application (COPA) to support traffic collision reporting, investigations and prosecutions in the MPS is currently being implemented. This application will provide the capability to report detailed information relating to all collisions reported in London. In relation to the prosecution outcomes, the functionality to digitise the prosecution process was deployed in March and it is expected that the first court hearing for these cases will be heard in May/June 2017.
