There are no targets for SCO1 caseloads.  Homicide investigations are led by a Senior Investigating Officer, who leads a team of investigators who collectively investigate homicides.

The overall number of homicide investigations can vary daily, with criminal trials being concluded and new homicide investigations commenced. 

The MPS is currently investigating over 250 homicides. The investigations may be at various stages including unsolved homicides, those awaiting trial and those currently at trial.
