SUBJECT: 13th Annual Domestic Violence Sweep
CONTACT: Lt. Doug Daza
AUTHORITY: Sheriff Dave Wedding

On Wednesday, October 21, 2015 the Vanderburgh County Sheriff’s Office worked simultaneously with agencies from across the country in an effort to arrest persons with outstanding warrants for family violence and domestic related issues. The 13th Annual Family Violence Apprehension Detail is coordinated by the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office in Oregon and includes agencies from every state in the United States. The participating agencies work to serve outstanding arrest warrants with charges ranging from harassment to murder that originated from a family violence incident.

This collaborative effort hopes to raise awareness about the problem of family and domestic violence in our communities and demonstrate that this social problem is important to law enforcement and our citizens. It also demonstrates to offenders that they will be held accountable for their violent actions and/or their non-compliance with court orders.

Six (6) people were arrested and eight (8) warrants were served during today’s sweep. Those arrested and their charges are listed below.


Marcia Leeann Rudisill, 33, of Evansville. Unlawful Sale/Transfer of a handgun
