 A managed investigation, known now as a directed investigation, is one where the IOPC sets the terms of reference for the investigation and direct the course of enquiries which are carried out using police resources. At the end of the investigation the relevant police authority will share its evidence and analysis with our team of investigators who will then decide whether the terms of reference have been met.
