Police in the Future

I think that the future police will have different tools to help with different crimes.  Handcuffs and straight jackets might have technology in them so they shut off the technology of the criminal. The cars could have things to have cars pull over and still be under cover! Their uniforms could be bullet proof and if the criminal had a gun, the suit could shut it off! Still the police would have their equipment and that is my idea of the future.
