The Phoenix Police Department is reporting resounding success with a recent five-day, multi-agency initiative coined Operation Full Court Press, which focused on enhancing public safety by proactively addressing violent offenders in Phoenix.

This coordinated effort underscores a commitment to creating a safer community for all residents, Phoenix Police officials tell the Digital Free Press.

Operation Full Court Press brought together Phoenix police officers, Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office, the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office, Adult Probation and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, according to a press release.

Phoenix police officials report the operation took place from May 6 through May 10 and resulted in the following:

  • A total of 570 arrests
  • A total of 342 felony arrests
  • A total of 228 misdemeanor arrests
  • A total of 13 juvenile detention
  • Over 3,700 fentanyl pills seized
  • Nearly 30 grams of methamphetamine seized
  • A total of 25 firearms seized
  • Two recovered stolen vehicle investigations with arrests

A probation search led to the discovery of a clandestine drug lab, resulting in a search warrant and seizure of multiple firearms, fentanyl, psychedelics, methamphetamine and firearm accessories, such as suppressors, Phoenix police officials report.

Phoenix police officials say the operation also aided in arrests involving gangs, human exploitation and trafficking, prostitution and organized retail crime.
