Police make 36 arrests in latest Safe Streets warrant initiative

CUMBERLAND — Thirty-six people were arrested in a warrant initiative conducted last week through the Cumberland Police Department’s Safe Streets program.

The program goal is to make streets safer through the reduction of backlogged arrest warrants. The Safe Streets operation relies on citizen help in locating and apprehending individuals on open arrest warrants.

“These warrant initiatives continue to be successful because of the partnership between our citizens providing information and officers following up on these leads to locate and apprehend individuals that have often eluded authorities for some time,” said Cumberland Police Chief Charles Hinnant.   

Safe Streets program coordinator David Goad said last week’s iniative resulted in 36 adult ar-rests, with 44 arrest warrants served.

“This is another successful operation resulting from citizen assistance and the hard work by all the officers that participated in this operation,” said Goad. 

The following individuals were apprehended during the Operation Takedown IV initiative.
