  • Take photographs, recordings and measurements.
  • Take items away with them for examination, testing or for use as evidence.
  • Take samples of substances or objects.
  • Ask to see your documents, make copies or take the documents.
  • Call in other people to assist them, including technical or scientific experts, interpreters or police officers.
