In response to a request from Surrey Police, two Ministry of Defence Police Detective Constables were seconded to the Surrey Police team for the duration of their investigation into the Deepcut deaths. During the secondment the two officers have been at all times under the full operational control of that Force. The details of the investigations are matters for the Surrey Police.
