CLACKAMAS COUNTY RESULTS:

On Thursday, Oct. 19, 2017, the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office Domestic Violence Enhanced Response Team (DVERT) worked with agencies throughout Oregon -- as well as agencies across the country -- to arrest persons with outstanding family-violence warrants. Locally, they conducted a total of 22 arrest warrant service attempts.

By 10 p.m. Thursday, this massive enforcement effort resulted in the arrests of 22 men and women brought to the Clackamas County Jail on existing arrest warrants. A PDF of Clackamas County mugshots and arrest charges from yesterday's DV sweep is linked above (These figures may be updated as more agencies report in).

Local agencies that participated in Clackamas County included police departments from Canby, Gladstone, Happy Valley, Milwaukie, Molalla, Oregon City, West Linn and Wilsonville, as well as the U.S. Marshals Service and Clackamas County Community Corrections.

Nationwide, the 15th Annual Family Violence Apprehension Detail included over 350 county sheriffs' offices, police departments, probation departments, and community agencies from 40 states. All agencies served outstanding arrest warrants -- with charges ranging from harassment to murder.

This collaborative effort, commonly known as the SWEEP, helps raise awareness of the problem of family and domestic violence in our communities. It also demonstrates to offenders that they will be held accountable for their violence.

In a pre-SWEEP briefing at the Public Safety Training Center, Clackamas County Sheriff Craig Roberts spoke to law-enforcement personnel and the media, along with Clackamas County Commissioner Sonya Fischer and guest speaker Maggie Sheldon.
