More than 550 alleged domestic violence offenders have been arrested and 81 weapons seized in a massive police crackdown.

Officers arrested the high-risk offenders across NSW between Wednesday and Sunday.

Nearly 230 of those arrested in the carefully planned four-day blitz were wanted by NSW Police for serious domestic violence offences.

Officers laid 1,070 charges, completed over 1,277 bail compliance checks and identified 144 individuals in breach of bail conditions statewide.

Police also seized 38 guns and 43 other weapons, including knives, from alleged domestic violence perpetrators.

In one dramatic arrest, Port Macquarie man Garry Davis, 55, held his middle finger to police as he was led from his apartment by cops after allegedly throwing a phone at his 62-year-old partner.

He was later charged with assault, damaging property, stalking and intimidation.

Another man, a 53-year-old from West Kempsey, was arrested for allegedly threatening a 47-year-old woman with an imitation firearm during an argument.

Officers allegedly seized the fake gun and cannabis before he was arrested and refused bail.

One street in Port Macquarie had multiple visits from police with officers checking three homes within 100m of each other.

Several alleged young offenders were also arrested during the raids, including a 15-year-old boy and 16-year-old girl.

The 15-year-old Kempsey boy was served an Apprehended Violence Orders (AVO) to prevent him from contacting another young girl he had a relationship with.

The 16-year-old girl from Lurnea, in Sydney's south-west, was charged with two counts of common assault (DV) and two counts of contravene prohibition/restriction in AVO (domestic).

Several women were also arrested during the raids but were not considered high risk offenders.

While searching for a male in West Kempsey, officers heard screaming in a nearby home and found a separate domestic incident between two women in the shower.

Tamara Davis, 32, was charged with common assault and contravening an AVO between her and the other woman.

Almost a dozen police vehicles swept through the towns and enacted searches based on information from a team of experts who profiled the state's most serious offenders.

The data crossmatched information from both incident response and victim-survivor reports with contemporary offending patterns to close on where the alleged perpetrators were most likely to be.

In several cases, alleged victims were able to give extremely detailed accounts of their alleged abusers' routine, down to where they park their car or what time they go to the pub.

However, officers weren't able to track down any of the targeted high risk individuals with outstanding warrants on the Mid North Coast on Wednesday.

Police pointed the blame at a series of unique obstacles found in regional towns.

It said families and victims often hide alleged perpetrators from officers.

The other main issue was a network of people using social media to warn each other of a large scale police operation.

Posters shared the locations of officers and images of unmarked police vehicle registrations.

The Minister for Police and Counter-terrorism, Yasmin Catley, believed the operation sent a strong message to perpetrators of domestic and family violence.

'These results show how seriously the NSW Police Force take domestic and family violence - this abhorrent behaviour is not tolerated,' she said.

'Anyone who commits this heinous crime can expect a knock at their door.'

NSW Police Executive Sponsor for Domestic and Family Violence, Deputy Commissioner, Peter Thurtell, said the Force is committed to tackling domestic violence and arresting offenders, no matter where they are.

The Minister for Police and Counter-terrorism, Yasmin Catley, believed the operation sent a strong message to perpetrators of domestic and family violence

'NSW Police officers respond to incidents of domestic and family violence every single day, and Operation Amarok enables police statewide to conduct a targeted blitz of those who have been flagged as the worst domestic violence offenders,' he said.

'These offenders pose a significant threat to their victims, as well as family members and the wider community.

'We demonstrated last week that we will target and arrest the offenders no matter where they are located.

'These Amarok VI results send a powerful message to offenders, and the community at large, that we do not tolerate domestic and family violence in any form, and our efforts will continue.'
