Marion Co. Sheriff’s Office – 10/20/22 4:37 PM
On October 19th, 2022, multiple law enforcement agencies in Marion County partnered together to conduct a county wide operation to apprehend offenders wanted on domestic violence related charges. This coordinated effort comes as local law enforcement agencies take time to focus on National Domestic Violence Awareness Month during the month of October.
During the operation, Community Corrections deputies worked directly with the Keizer Police Department, Marion County District Attorney’s Office, Salem Police Department, Woodburn Police Department, and patrol deputies from the Marion County Sheriff’s Office. This multi-agency coordinated effort achieved the following results:
- 43 warrant service attempts
- 15 release agreement compliance checks
- 9 arrests
- 4 follow-up contacts on new charges
Sheriff Joe Kast said, “We know domestic violence impacts families around Marion County every day of the year. Our mission last night was to bring together law enforcement from around the county and place a spotlight on something that quietly happens in too many homes. I appreciate the ongoing commitment the Marion County law enforcement community and our social service partners display by holding people accountable and to help those impacted by domestic violence”
