Vanderburgh County Sheriff's Office News Release - October 18, 2012:
Beginning early morning on October 17th, the Vanderburgh County Sheriff's Office worked simultaneously with agencies from across the country in an effort to arrest persons with outstanding warrants for family violence and domestic related issues. The 10th Annual Family Violence Apprehension Detail is coordinated by the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office in Oregon and includes agencies from every state in the United States. The participating agencies work to serve outstanding arrest warrants with charges ranging from harassment to murder that originated from a family violence incident.
This collaborative effort hopes to raise awareness about the problem of family and domestic violence in our communities and demonstrate that this social problem is important to law enforcement and our citizens. It also demonstrates to offenders that they will be held accountable for their violent actions and/or their non-compliance with court orders.
The Vanderburgh County Sheriff's Office, assisted by the Evansville Police Department and the Indiana State Police, detailed 13 deputies and attempted to serve warrants on numerous persons. The warrants were for charges including Failure to Pay Child Support, Strangulation, Domestic Violence Battery and Invasion of Privacy.
