MEPO 2/9953, Daily Sketch article
(2nd December 1963). Radios were used by police from 1910, but
the miniaturisation of two-way radios made a huge difference
to the isolation of the police constable on the street, as this
newspaper article from 1963 shows.
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.
Put some of the evidence
you have found in these Sources into your Gallery Worksheet.
