What’s that noticeboard-like thing police (appear to) use in most crime dramas, usually like a chalk or cork board with suspect photos and things pinned up and joined together with some red string or whatever?
I know that, I was hoping for some sort of magical police vocab for it
I always thought it was called an absurd TV writer’s dream of what police work looks like. Especially the string part.
A “prop” or “set dressing.”
They had one in The Wire, so I’m guessing Real Police use them, or at least, Real Baltimore Police.
