how to understand the “But this lot do seem pretty sharp.”?

‘Quite,’ says Helen. ‘Tell me about it. For a while I thought they’d just arrest me whatever I said. I had visions of being convicted for Jez’s murder and spending the rest of my days in prison. But this lot do seem pretty sharp. I have to hand it to them. They’ve changed my opinion of the police, in fact. Don’t know if they get some kind of psychological training these days.’
