These days children are exposed to serious themes at a very early age. While their elders played cops and robbers, the high tech world we now live in bombards the children with television shows, movies and even internet games with complex story lines. Thus they get to learn about forensics and the other tactics police use to fight crime.
Invariably some of them will idolize beat cops, detectives, forensic experts or Special Weapons and Tactics officers.
When it comes time for these children to dress up as someone they dream of becoming one day, they may choose to play the role of a CSI forensics expert, a regular policeman, or a SWAT team member.
