Police Reform Act 2002

Paragraph 18: Investigations managed by the Commission

107.This is a new concept which is similar to the supervised investigation but will be used in more serious or more sensitive cases which require a greater degree of independence. This independence will come from the strategy and direction provided in an investigation by the Commission and the managerial control it will exercise on a day-to-day basis. The Commission will be responsible for the investigation but the investigation itself will be carried out by the appointed investigating officer.

108.In a managed investigation the same provisions will apply as for a supervised investigation but the investigation will be under the direction and control of the Commission.
