Charles County Sheriff's Office Participates In Operation Joint Shield

When the clock struck midnight April 28, the Charles County Sheriff's Office, Prince George's County Sheriff's Office and Maryland State Police began their execution of Operation Joint Shield, a warrant sweep that resulted in the service of more than 40 outstanding criminal and child support warrants.

During the operation, 20 Charles County Sheriff's Office personnel, 16 Prince George's County Sheriff's deputies and six Maryland State Police troopers went to 87 locations in Charles and Prince George's counties to serve the warrants. Their efforts resulted in the service of 13 Charles County warrants and one Prince George's County warrant, as well as a detainer for a suspect who was discovered to be incarcerated in New Jersey. As of result of investigations preparing for the operation, 29 additional warrants related to Operation Joint Shield were served prior to April 28.

When the operation ended shortly before 8 a.m., the combined efforts of the law enforcement agencies involved had resulted in the service of 44 warrants. Two of the warrants were for child support, with a combined total of $10,193.75 due in arrears.

"I have a lot of pride in being a part of Operation Joint Shield," said Charles County Sheriff Frederick E. Davis. "Not only is this a demonstration of our commitment to getting wanted individuals off the streets, but it is a testament to the partnership between the Charles County and Prince George's County Sheriff's offices and the Maryland State Police. It's because of that partnership and our commitment to protecting the community that we are able to execute these warrant sweeps successfully."

Anyone with information about a wanted person in Charles County may call the Charles County Sheriff's Office at 301-932-2222, 301-932-7777 or 301-743-2222.
