    This article details the findings of research commissioned by the National Policing Homicide Working Group (HWG) to capture current T.I.E practice and identify examples of good practice and areas where guidance and training for SIO’s is needed. The research consisted of a Practitioner Focus Group with PIP 3 SIO’s, consultation with HOLMES users and subject matter experts: NCA Behavioural Investigative Advisers, Approved Interview Advisers and the HWG. The paper concludes with the recommendation that a change in terminology to Trace, Investigate and Evaluate is required as this more accurately encapsulates what current T.I.E practice entails. In addition, tactical guidance and specific SIO training is needed to enhance knowledge of effective T.I.E strategy and action management.
