Ten teams, under Sheriff’s Office leadership, included the Prince George’s County Police Department (PGPD), Metropolitan Police Department (MPD), Maryland State Police (MSP), Maryland National Capital Park Police (MNCPP), Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI), Prince George’s County Department of Corrections, Bladensburg Police Department, Hyattsville City Police Department, Glenarden Police Department, Charles County Sheriff’s Office, Greenbelt Police Department and with the support of the Prince George's County Public Safety Communications.
The Clackamus County Annual Warrant Sweep takes place every year in October during Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Launched in 2002 by Clackamus County Sheriff Craig Roberts, the Clackamus County Sweep has grown to include over 300 county sheriff’s offices, police departments, probation departments, and municipal agencies from 29 states. During the last eight years the Prince George’s County, MD Sheriff’s Office has led the effort with the highest number of closed warrants and arrests.
“The grant from the Governor’s Office on Crime Control and Prevention (GOCCP) enables us to conduct this important operation. Everything about the Clackamus County Warrant Sweep is a win for the Sheriff’s Office, for all our participating law enforcement partners and the community. Many of these warrants are related to family violence which is why it’s conducted during Domestic Violence Awareness Month and the Clackamus County effort is a potent reminder that domestic violence has no place in our community,” said Prince George’s County Sheriff Melvin C. High.
