William Barr: Nearly 1,500 Arrests Made Under Operation Legend

U.S. Attorney General William Barr announced Wednesday that 1,485 arrests have been made under “Operation Legend,” the Trump administration’s anti-violence crime initiative.Operation Legend — a law enforcement program started around six weeks ago — is currently underway in nine U.S. cities and has led to nearly 220 individuals being charged with federal crimes.

“That’s more than 90 suspected killers who might still be on the streets without Operation Legend,” Barr told reporters during a press conference in Kansas City, Missouri. “Our work is just getting started, there is no more important mission for the Department of Justice than keeping our communities safe.”
