I keep reading that one detective of the 50 who handle reports of rape is responsible for one-fifth of the reports labeled "unfounded." I'd like to know how he comes to be involved in so many cases, and just how many cases he handled.
Less than 200 reports spread over a 50-man unit would be four cases per detective. We're told this one detective labeled 14 cases "unfounded." How many cases did he work? Is more than one detective involved in each report? Is a small set of detectives responsible for all rape reports?

How does one detective handle so many rape cases?
