Kansas City police arrested 34 people and cleared 170 warrants during a two-day sweep that targeted some of the city’s most violent offenders.
Operation Street Audit sought to arrest 100-plus people wanted for their involvement in multiple violent crimes.
The Kansas City Police Department partnered with federal agents from the FBI, U.S. Marshals Service and the ATF and the Kansas City No Violence Alliance on Monday and Tuesday to apprehend the subjects as part of the sweep.
More than 130 police officers and federal agents conducted 288 residence checks over the past two days.

The subjects were identified by KC NoVa as being a part of groups that are involved in violent criminal activity in Kansas City.
KC NoVa is a collaboration of law enforcement, prosecutors and community groups that include the Kansas City Police Department, the U.S. Attorney, FBI, ATF, the Jackson County Prosecutor’s Office, the Missouri Board of Probation and Parole and the University of Missouri-Kansas City.
KC NoVa identifies people closest to group-related violence and tries to help them improve their lives through assistance with education, job training, housing, mental and physical health care, addiction therapy and other services.
There are currently 133 people receiving services through the coalition, police said.
