On Wednesday, Oct. 19, 2016, 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 173 arrest warrant service attempts.

By 10 p.m. Wednesday, this massive enforcement effort resulted in the arrests of 14 men and women brought to the Clackamas County Jail on existing arrest warrants. A 5-page 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, Oregon City, Wilsonville, Happy Valley and Molalla, as well as the U.S. Marshals Service and Clackamas County Community Corrections.

Nationwide, the 14th Annual Family Violence Apprehension Detail included over 400 county sheriffs' offices, police departments, probation departments, and community agencies from 45 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 Destiny, a survivor of domestic violence.
