Maine State Police Arresting Those With Domestic Violence Warrants

State Police have taken part in a statewide effort targeting dozens of people with outstanding arrest warrants related to domestic violence.

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

The offenses ranged from violating protection orders, failing to appear in court, domestic violence assault and probation revocation.

Some of the offenses dated back a decade and because of the age of some of the paperwork, outdated addresses were involved with many of those being sought. Troopers did make six arrests.

A team of 28 Troopers fanned out across the state last Thursday night. The arrests, all men, took place in Ellsworth, Thomaston, Livermore, Brownfield, Gray, and Chesterville.

In addition, troopers found two cases of unreported domestic assault and two other violations of protection from abuse orders.

The Maine Coalition to End Domestic Violence praised the effort.

Communications Director Regina Rooney said,

“State Police, along with local and county law enforcement,  work hard to be part of the solution to end domestic abuse and violence. This month, MCEDV is talking with Mainers about moving beyond awareness and taking action—to support survivors, to hold abusers accountable, and to end abuse for good. We are so grateful for law enforcement’s work, this month and throughout the year.”

If you or someone you know has been a victim of domestic violence, there is help here.
