Crime in the Sunshine State

Crime in the Sunshine State

This week we're taking a serious look at the state of crime in our area. We'll ask local law enforcement to weigh in on the trends they're seeing, and discuss ways we can all avoid becoming victims. And we'll take a look at the relationship between education and crime. Then Larry Elliston introduces us to a former convict who turned his life around and hopes to inspire others to do the same.

Catching Criminals

An often-cited statistic among law enforcement professionals goes something like this: 6 percent of people commit 60 percent of the crime. We'll learn about efforts by one local sheriff's office to catch that 60 percent. Plus, white-collar and financial crimes have been all over the news. We'll look at how investigators are going after the culprits, this week.
