Does anybody understand this sentence? Since the hint said "traffic" as an answer to "trafico" is there anyway to jump to the conclusion that "trafficking" is the correct translation?

Why must it be 'According to THE police..?' The definite article isn't necessary in English. I notice 'A sociedade', according to Duo, can be rendered 'Society' and 'The society'.
