Law enforcement in Liberty County made a concerted effort this week to close open warrants and perform high-visibility proactive policing.
What began as a idea from Probation Chief Steve Swan to arrest those with probation revocation warrants, morphed into something much larger.
Liberty County Attorney Investigator Jacob Ladwig organized the roundup with the assistance of the Liberty County District Attorney’s Office, Constables from Precinct 1, 2, 3 and 5, the Texas Department of Public Safety, Liberty-Chambers County Probation Department, Liberty Police Department, Dayton Police Department and the Liberty County Sheriff’s Office.
More than 80 arrests were made because of this effort.
District Attorney Logan Pickett and County Attorney Matthew Poston hope this is just the first of many.
“It makes little sense to issue warrants and not actively seek to execute them. No person with a warrant should feel safe and secure knowing no one is looking for them. We appreciate the efforts of all those who assisted and look forward to another roundup in the near future,” a statement from Pickett and Poston reads.
