The MPS is concentrating on improving the quality and rigour of initial investigations in order to improve the service to victims by reducing the need for follow up visits.
In addition, the MPS has reviewed its telephone investigation service and committed to offering a personal visit to any victim of crime who requests it.
This has resulted in an additional 50,000 victims of crime being visited by an initial investigator since April 2012.
