Police sergeants in charge of the initial stages of a missing persons inquiry should be given "ownership" of the case, said a report into the police tactics used after a person has vanished.
- "Ownership" should be given in the first 48 hours with officers passing the case onto other duty inspectors between shifts.
- This would allow for a genuinely critical risk assessment at handovers.
- The report argues for police officers to adhere to a formal framework, such as the National Decision Model, when calculating risk.
