RETIRED homicide detectives may be recalled to review unsolved murder cases under a plan being considered by police.
The investigators would be contracted to re-examine files to identify cases that they believe can now be solved.
"They have so much expertise it would be of great benefit if we can tap into it," Assistant Commissioner (Crime) Simon Overland said.
Of course this assumption that "they have so much expertise" is based on the assumption that they can remember anything- including their own names.
The retired police could also be used as consultants to check on the progress of investigations. "A fresh set of eyes can often see obvious things that have been missed," Mr Overland said.
"Fresh eyes". Must be a typo.
This has the making of a TV series- no doubt:
