CUMBERLAND — Last week’s arrest warrant
initiative conducted by the Cumberland
Police Department’s Safe Streets Program
resulted in 22 arrests.
“Our goal continues to be making our streets
safer through the reduction of backlogged arrest
warrants. The Safe Streets Operation sought citizen
help in locating and apprehending individuals
on open arrest warrants,” said David Goad,
Safe Streets program coordinator.
Twenty-two individuals were arrested on
active arrest warrants, with a total of 23 arrest
warrants being served.
“This was another successful operation conducted
with officers from the Cumberland City
Police Department and deputies from the Allegany
County Sheriff’s Department, together
with the warrant fugitive officers, who combined
their resources to reduce the number of active
arrest warrants in Allegany County,” said Goad.
