Almost 60 law enforcement officers, including some with Canby PD, participated in a Clackamas County domestic violence sweep on Wednesday night, in an effort to locate individuals with outstanding family violence warrants.
Eighteen arrests were made, on a variety of charges. While the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office Domestic Violence Enhanced Response Team (DVERT) led the detail locally, it was actually part of a nationwide effort that included over 300 law enforcement agencies from 29 states.
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.
