Have you been arrested in Miami-Dade County?

Facing criminal allegations can be immensely frightening. In the state of Florida, there is on average one violent crime committed every 6 minutes and one property crime every 50 seconds. With statistics like this, law enforcement throughout the state is on high alert to keep residents as safe as possible; however, their attentiveness can have negative effects as well.

In 2012, there were over 960,000 total arrests of both juveniles and adults in Florida alone. Unfortunately there is always room for false accusations and wrongful arrests.
