Journal of Homicide and Major Incident Investigation

Until November 2016, the National Homicide Working Group (HWG) published the Journal of Homicide and Major Incident Investigation which encouraged practitioners and policy makers to share their professional knowledge and practice. The journal was published twice a year and contained papers on professional practice, procedure, legislation and developments, which were relevant to those investigating homicide and major incidents.
