Citrus County Sheriff’s Office authorities took 20 locals into custody during a two-day operation targeting alleged offenders of domestic-related crimes.

Operation Step Up was the sheriff’s office’s response to the Citrus Abuse Shelter Association, or CASA, asking its community to “step it up” for survivors of family violence during Domestic Violence Awareness in October, according to the sheriff’s office.
