Hennepin County is telling people with warrants against them to turn themselves in now – or risk being arrested at their home or workplace during a massive sweep on Wednesday.
The Sheriff’s Office and several other law enforcement agencies are conducting the sweep. They’ll focus on arresting people with offenses ranging from felonies to misdemeanors – most involving domestic violence cases.
“By pursuing warrants, we are sending the message that domestic violence will not be tolerated in Hennepin County and offenders will be held accountable,” Sheriff Rick Stanek said in a statement.
Those who want to voluntarily surrender can turn themselves in to any local law enforcement agency or the Hennepin County Jail at 401 South 4th Av. In Minneapolis.
