CBS5 rode along with Detective Lee for several hours and witnessed one arrest and several unsuccessful attempts to contact people who have outstanding warrants.
During the three day sweep performed last year, officers made 344 attempts to contact individuals with warrants and arrested 37 people.
After people are arrested on domestic violence related charges, there's a good chance they will at some point appear before Glendale City Judge Elizabeth Finn.
"To help victims and hold abusers accountable," says Judge Finn.
She literally wrote the book judges statewide refer to on protective orders and domestic violence cases.
"Our court handles more protective orders per judge than any other city court in the state," says Judge Finn.
For three decades, Judge Finn has been at the forefront of domestic violence advocacy.
In Glendale, she has secured grants for a specific domestic violence treatment court, which would be comparable to a program an alcohol or drug offender would have to complete in order to satisfy the terms of their conviction.
Grants have also paid for a full-time victims advocate within the police department, and specific domestic violence offense reports for officers to prepare in the field.
"I realized the police, prosecutors and the judiciary really needed to step up," said Judge Finn about how she became involved in this area of the law.
The advocate who works for the police department is referred to as an expert in "high lethality" cases, those that can often end in death. The woman filling that role is on call 24-7.
"They're extremely pro-active and trying to reach out to our victims. Our victim's advocates are exceptional," says Detective Lee.
Only several hours into the round-up, officers made sixty contact attempts and made four arrests.
We will update those numbers as we get new information.
