Verde Valley AZ (November 7, 2014) – On Wednesday, November 5, YCSO deputies and officers from multiple Yavapai County law enforcement agencies conducted several arrest warrants checks throughout the county. The warrants involved various charges including assault, child abuse, criminal damage, failure to pay, threatening, failure to obey court order, probation violation, etc. The goal was to hold these individuals accountable for their actions and in turn provide support for the involved domestic violence victims. October just concluded Domestic Violence Awareness month which served as a reminder that victims of this crime should not be forgotten. In light of this observance, the Sheriff and Police Chiefs from around the County who sit as members of the Partner’s Against Narcotics Trafficking (PANT) board, became the driving force to organize a warrant sweep targeting domestic violence suspects/defendants.
