- 37 local law-enforcement members participating

On Wednesday, Oct. 19, 2016, the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office Domestic Violence Enhanced Response Team (DVERT) worked with agencies throughout Oregon -- as well as agencies across the country -- to arrest persons with outstanding family-violence warrants. Locally, they conducted a total of 173 arrest warrant service attempts.

By 10 p.m. Wednesday, this massive enforcement effort resulted in the arrests of 14 men and women brought to the Clackamas County Jail on existing arrest warrants. A 5-page PDF of Clackamas County mugshots and arrest charges from yesterday's DV sweep is attached. (These figures may be updated as more agencies report in.)

Local agencies that participated in Clackamas County included police departments from Canby, Gladstone, Oregon City, Wilsonville, Happy Valley and Molalla, as well as the U.S. Marshals Service and Clackamas County Community Corrections.

Nationwide, the 14th Annual Family Violence Apprehension Detail included over 400 county sheriffs' offices, police departments, probation departments, and community agencies from 45 states. All agencies served outstanding arrest warrants -- with charges ranging from harassment to murder.

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.

In a pre-SWEEP briefing at the Public Safety Training Center, Clackamas County Sheriff Craig Roberts spoke to law-enforcement personnel and the media, along with Destiny, a survivor of domestic violence.

- A 2007 study states that 15.5 million children in the United States live in families in which partner violence occurred at least once in the past year, and 7 million children live in families in which severe partner violence occurred.

- Children who witness domestic violence are more likely to attempt suicide, abuse drugs and alcohol, run away from home, and engage in teenage prostitution.

MCSO SAR coordinators have consulted with a Clackamas County EMS wilderness doctor, MCSO Command, and the Portland Police Bureau's Missing Persons Unit prior to making the decision to suspend search efforts pending new information or developments in the investigation.

Search efforts will resume in the event MCSO SAR Coordinators establish credible leads.
