William Schwartz is a lieutenant in the Miami Police Department. The Department runs a law enforcement operation based on preventive community policing with particular emphasis on trying to get younger people at risk involved in social activities.Policing in Miami takes place at a personal level.

Pablo Canton is the administrator for the Neighborhood Enhancement Team (NET) in East Little Havanna, an area of Miami. Pablo' job involves trying to solve problems in the community: problems with garbage, with public works, with vagrants, and with the police, for example. Pablo feels NET has made a lot of progress in recent years but he knows there is still a lot to do. One of the projects he is working on at the moment is to instruct local residents, many from whom come from countries in Central America, about the US laws.
