Assistant Chief Constable Steve Heywood said: "We remain committed to fully investigating the circumstances surrounding the murders of PC Fiona Bone and PC Nicola Hughes.
"As we have said previously, this remains a complex and sensitive investigation and we continue to ask the public to search their conscience and urge anyone who has any information to contact us."
The funerals for the two officers will take place next week.
