The streets of Florida could be a little bit safer after a three-week police initiative resulted in the arrest of nearly 12,000 felons. The initiative named "Operation: Felon Sweep" targeted felons known to be, or believed to be in the Florida area with open warrants.

Of the 12,000 individuals arrested, many were considered violent criminals. These men and women pulled from the streets were arrested on a variety of charges and open warrants ranging from drugs, to attempted murder, to rape and child-sex charges. Several fugitives will be expedited to their home states to be tried for their warrants.
