Accident Management: Road Death Manual

The ACPO (2007) Road Death Investigation Manual (RDIM) is used to assist forces to develop policies and business processes to ensure that deaths on the road are investigated professionally.

The RDIM has been developed on behalf of ACPO by the National Policing Improvement Agency with the help and support of practitioners from the roads policing community and partner agencies.

The Police Service has a duty to conduct a thorough investigation to establish the circumstances that have led to a road death, and to discharge their responsibilities to the coroner. Most importantly, the investigation will enable the Police Service to provide an explanation of what happened to the family and friends of the deceased.

In addition, the outcome of investigations can be used to learn lessons which may assist in the prevention of further deaths and serious injuries on the road.
