Law enforcement conducted a statewide warrant sweep operation resulting in the arrest of numerous people wanted on outstanding State of Connecticut arrest warrants.
On Wednesday, after several months of planning, over 90 municipal, state, and federal law enforcement agencies in Connecticut executed a “Statewide Warrant Sweep Operation.”
All arrest warrants served were for State of Connecticut charges and pertain to crimes in violation of Connecticut General Statutes.
The operation commenced pre-dawn with each participating agency conducting sweeps for wanted persons within their State Police developed intelligence packages.
The State Police provided updated intelligence on these wanted persons in order to conduct safe, timely, and accurate apprehensions.
All warrants served in relation to this operation will be referred to a local superior court associated to their jurisdiction.
The targets of this operation were individuals who are currently wanted on felony and misdemeanor outstanding arrest warrants incurred during official state investigations.
In total, this operation netted 285 arrest warrants being served statewide. Information concerning the identification of each arrested party, to include specific charges, will be available through the local arresting agency or State Police barracks.
This operation was conducted with the intent of ensuring a cost-effective method of serving outstanding warrants by utilizing a unified mass operation.
This operation is a stellar example of collaboration to uphold the judicial system which demands fugitives from justice are presented with an opportunity to a speedy and fair trial.
Likewise, we have capitalized on this opportunity to enhance community safety by removing proven and potentially dangerous fugitives from the streets
Furthermore, this operation shows the commitment and the spirit of cooperation amongst the law the enforcement community which will no doubt continue after the conclusion of this operation. This operation illustrates the necessity of working together, and by doing so, can make Connecticut a safer state for all.
