The operation began at 4:00 pm and concluded at midnight.Over forty (40) law enforcement officers attempted to serve one hundred and six (106) open warrants.The types of warrants included: felony warrants, misdemeanor warrants, domestic violence warrants, child support warrants and parole re-take warrants.In addition, law enforcement officers were teamed with adult and juvenile probation officers who conducted nine (9) parole and probation Violence Prevention Initiative (VPI) checks, as well as, sixty (60) juvenile probation home visits. The Violence Prevention Initiative targets Maryland’s most violent criminal offenders.For more information on the Violence Prevention Initiative visit the Governor’s Office of Crime Control and Prevention at http://www.goccp.maryland.gov/msac/documents/FactSheets/VPI.pdf
As a result of the operation sixteen individuals were arrested and fifteen (15) warrants served, including one parole re-take warrant.The VPI investigations lead to the gathering of information to make application for the arrest of an individual who was in violation of the terms and conditions of his probation.Once that parole violation warrant is issued the offender will be arrested.No juvenile probation violations were detected.
