I think we need more information or assumptions? Terrorists are not arrested at random.
Perhaps there were only 83 terrorists in the 1000 population and all have been arrested. Then p = 0.
Perhaps all 1000 are terrorists and only 83 have been arrested so far. Then p = 1.
So, probably the answer is somewhere between 0 and 1.
