Probation Leads Domestic Violence Offender Operation

DUI Operation Photo 2016-1026.jpgThe Sacramento County Probation Department, with assistance from the Citrus Heights Police Department, Elk Grove Police Department, Sacramento Police Department, Sacramento Sheriff’s Department, and welfare fraud investigators from the Department of Human Assistance, conducted a joint, one-day operation in Sacramento County on October 26, 2016.  This operation, carried out in recognition and support of Domestic Violence Awareness month, focused on compliance checks of domestic violence offenders on probation.

 

Teams led by probation officers dispatched to specified areas throughout the county, where they served warrants, conducted searches, and arrested individuals who were in violation of their conditions of probation.

 

Officers conducted 53 probation searches, resulting in 12 arrests, 37 violations of probation, one citation, and one child placed into protective custody. Additionally, officers seized 6.87 grams of methamphetamines, 1.6 grams of heroin, and 3.52 pounds of marijuana; one knife, a set of brass knuckles, over $1,300, and a handgun, reported stolen from the state of Nevada; and recovered a stolen vehicle.

 

The operation was successful in enforcing compliance of domestic violence offenders with their court orders and served as a beneficial opportunity for local law enforcement agencies to partner together to provide effective community supervision to Sacramento County.

 

 “Operations like these bolster inter-agency information-sharing and teamwork, which supports our efforts to serve the community and keep people safe,” said Chief Deputy Probation Officer Kristina Thompson. “By enforcing offender compliance with court orders, we not only protect victims of past crimes but also intervene before others are victimized.”
