Description

The Sun-Sentinel discovers broad and routine manipulation of crime statistics at the Boca Raton Police Services Department. The story found that the department was investigating hundreds of crime reports to determine whether they had been improperly downgraded. It discovered that the number three supervisor in the department had improperly downgraded hundreds of crimes to protect the image of the city, which had always prided itself as one of the county's most affluent and crime free communities.
