Hennepin County Sheriff, Police Plan Warrant Sweep | News
Hennepin County Sheriff Rich Stanek is urging anyone with an active warrant to surrender to authorities.
On Wednesday, July 17, the sheriff's office will be conducting a warrant sweep in partnership with more than a dozen law enforcement agencies, the sheriff's office reported.
Deputies and officers will clear warrants and arrest people who are wanted for a range of offenses - from felonies to misdemeanors. The sweep will focus on warrants related to domestic violence cases.
"People who are wanted on active warrants are more likely to reoffend," said Sheriff Rich Stanek in a statement. "By pursuing warrants, we are sending the message that domestic violence will not be tolerated in Hennepin County and offenders will be held accountable."
When a person wanted on an active warrant voluntarily surrenders, the person will avoid being arrested by deputies in their home or workplace. A wanted person can surrender at the sheriff's office or local police stations.
