Hints
 

These sources are all quite easy to understand. As you look at them, think about: which aspect of police work will be changed? Is this technology an entirely new approach, or a new way of doing an old job? There is some evidence, too, of the attitudes of: the police (Source 2), criminals (Source 3) and the public (Source 4) to these changes.
