Upper Marlboro, MD… The Sheriff’s Child Support Enforcement Division concluded its annual “Father’s Day” Warrant operation yesterday, which focused primarily on apprehending suspects with child support related warrants.
During the two-day operation, deputies attempted to serve warrants at 93 residences throughout Prince George’s County; apprehending 28 suspects and closing 32 warrants (30 Child Support warrants and 2 Criminal warrants). The combined total amount of arrears owed by the suspects arrested during the operation is $446, 221.96.
Captain Bauer, Assistant Bureau Chief of Field Operations, said, “The success of this year’s operation can be attributed, in large part, to the hard work and dedication of our deputy sheriffs. There is a tremendous amount of investigation and strategic planning involved in an initiative like this, and our women and men should be commended for their efforts.”
Sheriff Melvin C. High said, “The partnership we have developed with the State’s Office of Child Support Enforcement has helped to facilitate the collection of 77.8 million dollars in back child support this year. Our agency is proud to be a partner in any efforts aimed at assisting families affected by the non-payment of child support, or reducing the amount of open Prince George’s County warrants.”
The initiative was conducted between June 18 and 19, and included deputies from the Child Support Enforcement, Domestic Violence Intervention, and Prisoner Transport Divisions.

Sheriff High said he had been involved with Special Olympics for over 30 years and also urged new officers to support the program, saying, “It’s been a pleasure to see the program grow over the years and a source of pride knowing that the law enforcement community helped to fuel that growth.”
“Every year we are reminded of the strength and commitment of support we get from our colleagues, fellow officers and friends for this great event. As a parent of a Special Olympics athlete and a member of law enforcement, I’m proud and thankful for the friends our program has. They are what makes it all work,” said Chief Holland.
The Sheriff’s Office Motors Unit escorted the runners and provided a bus for runners who might need a break along the route and to transport them back to the Courthouse at the end of the Run.
The Torch Run was the idea of Police Chief Richard LaMunyon of Witchita, Kansas, who hoped to involve law enforcement in the idea 1981, to raise money to support Special Olympics.
The idea took off when the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) embraced the project just three year later. With the support of IACP, law enforcement community involvement grew to include organizations at every level of government.
