It may be prurient, but at a technical level it's interesting to listen to the cops r/t in real-time and monitor the report locations on Google maps.

I'm surprised that a second world country is so backward in its technology. The commanders are constantly having to ask for position reports of all their assets.
In the 21st century in first world countries the cops have automatic GPS data telemeted constantly so the controllers always know exactly who is exactly where.

Despite the very low tech and the comically inefficient use of resources, they are actually being quite methodical in 'owning' (to borrow their jargon) two streets at a time and clear house by house.

Listen to the current roll-call of the poor sods who've been on duty since midnight.
