English term or phrase: police
I've just examined the school. The time was 11:37pm.
I found the following pieces of evidence.
The Blackmail letter comtaining the finger prints of Erin.(friend of jessica)

Footprints in the hallway leading to room 109b. The footprints belonged to the shoes of kathleen.(school programmer)

A baseball cap with traces of jessica's hair but the cap belonged to steven,(principal of the school)

The cap was found on the doorknob with the footprints leading into it.

The children that go to the school will not be there tomorrow for further investigation.

It does sound like the police should investigate this case. I am not sure what you were asking here though.
