Upper Marlboro, MD…The Prince George’s County Office of the Sheriff’s Child Support Enforcement Division conducted an overnight warrant sweep on August 6th.
The sweep was comprised of three teams of Deputies who made 60 attempts to locate individuals with outstanding child support warrants. The operation resulted in 14 arrests to close 15 warrants, which represented child support arrearages of over $227,000.00.
According to Lieutenant Joyce Bowers, Commander of the Child Support Enforcement Division the mini sweep’s success was made possible because of the assistance received from Deputies of the Domestic Violence Intervention Division, Civil/ Landlord & Tenant Division and Warrants and Fugitive Division.
“Child Support payments are enormously important for the custodial parent to assure the care and wellbeing of children; nothing is more important.” said Lieutenant Bowers. “We couldn’t have been more pleased about the arrest of a defendant with arrearages of over $99,000.00 due in child support. This capture allows the custodial parent to begin the process of collecting monies to support the children involved.”
