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.”
