VICKSBURG, Miss. (Vicksburg Daily News) – On Thursday, the Vicksburg Police Department instituted Operation Blitz, a directed initiative targeting street-level criminal activity.
For the next several weeks, officers of the Patrol Division, the Criminal Investigations Division, and the Narcotics/NET Team will be out in force throughout the city focusing on high-level offenders who are responsible for a disproportionate amount of crimes.
A second major objective of Operation Blitz will be serving warrants, particularly those for persons who are being sought for multiple charges. The teams of officers will also work toward identifying and arresting violent subjects who are in illegal possession of firearms.
