Warrant Sweep leads to the arrest of 25 in Clackamas County


Warrant Arrest

On Wednesday, Oct. 19, 2022, the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office held its 19th Annual Family Violence Apprehension Detail.

Each year as part of Domestic Violence Awareness Month the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office joins forces with multiple agencies in Oregon and throughout the country to locate and arrest persons with outstanding family violence warrants.

This year over 215 agencies in 15 states united to bring offenders to justice. In Clackamas County alone, 45 law-enforcement members arrested 25 people on existing arrest warrants for family violence and other charges.  An additional 102 warrant service attempts were made.

This collaborative effort demonstrates to offenders that no matter where they flee, we will work to hold them accountable for their crimes. It also helps to raise awareness of the problem of family violence in our communities.

If you or someone you know is experiencing domestic violence, help is available right now, please contact A Safe Place Family Justice Center at 503-655-8600 or Clackamas Women’s Services' 24-hour crisis and support line at 503-654-2288.
