The St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office Participates in the 13th Annual National Family Violence Apprehension Detail

In October, the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office conducted a warrants sweep targeting suspects of crimes related to domestic violence. The effort was held in conjunction with National Domestic Violence Awareness Month and the National Family Violence Apprehension Detail. The final report has been calculated with 499 participants in 36 states. In 2015, 2631 law enforcement members participated and a total of 1759 warrants were served.

Those arrested face charges ranging from assault, violation of protective orders, stalking, telephone misuse, and other domestic-violence-related charges.

The National Family Violence Apprehension Detail is an annual event in its 13th year; it includes several law enforcement agencies across the country. The collaborative effort helps raise awareness of family and domestic violence problems in the community and demonstrates to offenders that they will be held accountable for their actions.
