Dealing with local crime priorities is the responsibility of all MPS officers and staff in a Borough. Different ranks and teams, from emergency response teams, to neighbourhood teams, to CID may be involved, depending on the priority in question and the incident concerned.  For example, a response officer may attend and conduct an initial investigation into a crime, which is subsequently transferred to a CID office to conduct secondary investigation.
