HO 291/1417 ICT ad from Daily
Telegraph. The police realised the potential for computers to
help them in their work from the 1960s. The ability of computers
to handle and search data, very fast, gave rise to the headline
on this advertisement from 1968.
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.

you have found in these Sources into your Gallery Worksheet.
