What should be more worrying, is that the clear up rate of 90% has now apparently dropped to 75%.Met have started 44 murder investigations this year.
Despite excellence in forensics and the investigation, it is going backwards.
Now for all my gloom and piss taking, be under no illusion. Homicide command were bloody good (when I had any insight or dealing with them) and amongst the squads detectives fought for the right to be on.
We should be alarmed as to why things are going backwards.
