As the first part, very soon after the beginning of the passage, the player gets access to a few basic mechanics. First, there is a global map where you can see certain interesting sights. They need to equip police forces. Alas, the budget of Sharpvue is extremely limited, and therefore often have to make choices — where to send a well-armed crew, and a few newcomers.
