National family violence detail leads to six local arrests

Several local law enforcement agencies Wednesday made six domestic violence related arrests as part of a national effort to raise awareness of domestic violence in our community.

The Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office collaborated with Deschutes County Adult Parole and Probation, the Bend Police Department and the Redmond Police Department in participating in the 2019 National Family Violence Apprehension Detail. This detail focused on attempting warrants for Domestic Violence related crimes throughout Deschutes County.

Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office Lt. Chad Davis said the agencies attempted 100 warrants and made six arrests. Two of those warrants served were for other crimes.  This was a five hour detail that focused on all of Deschutes County, to include the incorporated cities. There were 20 law enforcement officers and Parole and Probation officers, who were paired up in teams to execute these warrants, Davis said.

This collaborative effort, is usually known as the SWEEP, helps raise awareness of the problem of family and domestic violence in our communities, Davis said.

There were hundreds of law enforcement agencies throughout the nation participating in this event. The Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office coordinates this event for the nation and has made this detail a success.
