Last weekend the Montgomery County Deputy Sheriffs participating in the nationwide 9th Annual Family Violence Apprehension Detail, arrested 40 persons on family violence related warrants.

 The Family Violence Warrant SWEEP is a day-long event, in which the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office, along with law enforcement agencies across the United States, attempt to serve outstanding family-violence warrants. Last year, over 160 law-enforcement agencies from 22 different states participated.

During the 2011 warrant sweep, Montgomery County deputies, along with Montgomery County police officers, attempted to serve 56 outstanding warrants. The law enforcement officers participating in the sweep served 52 warrants on 40 wanted subjects.

The Montgomery County Sheriff's Office, created in 1777, engages in general law enforcement, judicial enforcement, prisoner transport, domestic violence, fugitive apprehension and security related functions. The Sheriff's Office plays a leading role in the operation of the multi-agency Montgomery County Family Justice Center, and has been nationally accredited by the Commission for Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA) since 1995.
