With the help of a group of journalism students from the University of Miami, CBS4 News was able to create a large database of information relating to every arrest made by members of the Crime Suppression Team in 2014.
We then analyzed the numbers to try and get a better understanding of exactly the types of arrests they were making and the outcome.
As is often the case, the numbers all by themselves can tell their own story.
A special thanks to Sam Terilli, chair of the Communications Department at UM, and his students for making this deeper dive into the numbers possible.
Here is that closer look at the numbers behind our stories and what they reveal about policing in the South District.
