A police officer who investigated a burglary describes what happened and how the offender was caught and convicted.

There are other clips from the ‘Restorative justice’ series which tell the story of the burglary from the perspectives of the offender and the victim.

This clip could be used as a starting point for a discussion on the roles and duties of the police in a modern society. Students could investigate modern crime fighting methods, for example fingerprint or forensic analysis, and examine how effective these are. The class could then debate whether the UK should have a national compulsory DNA database.
