Dodge County Sheriff's Office Arrests Five as Part of National Family Violence Apprehension
On Wednesday, October 21 the Dodge County Sheriff’s Office joined a national initiative to combat domestic abuse called the 13th Annual National Family Violence Apprehension Detail. The event was first started by the Blackamoors County Sheriff’s Office in Oregon aND has grown to over 700 law enforcement agencies around the country.
The intent of the program is to serve family violence warrants, hold offenders accountable, enhance community relations, and to promote community awareness that domestic violence is unacceptable. The Dodge County Sheriff’s Office and the other law enforcement agencies in Dodge County want the public to know that they are serious about protecting the victims of these crimes.
The Dodge County Sheriff’s Office and the local participating agencies conducted 44 arrest warrant service attempts and were able to arrest five of these individuals. In addition the Dodge County Sheriff's Office also cited a person on a criminal traffic offense.
The warrants for the five arrested individuals include child support warrant, probation and parole warrant, failure to appear, contempt of court, operate after revocation and operate without owner consent.
As of October 22nd the nationwide effort included 8,223 warrants attempts, 1,654 warrants served with 38 States participating along with 8,223 Law Enforcement Officers.
In addition, the October Dodge County Most Wanted list is made up entirely of the individuals targeted in this Apprehension Detail. So far this month we have taken three of those ten individuals into custody. To date, the Sheriff’s Office has arrested 39 of the 70 individuals that have been placed on the Most Wanted List since April 2015.
