Upper Marlboro, MD…The Prince George’s County Office of the Sheriff made 45 arrests to close 49 warrants in a Mother’s Day’s Child Support Enforcement Division warrant sweep conducted on May 20th and 21st. Sheriff’s deputies attempted to serve 130 warrants during the sweep with four teams of 4-6 deputies. The sweep arrests represent child support arrears of over $564,000, and also included closure of 7 traffic and 3 criminal warrants.
According to Captain Sharon Saunders, Civil Divisions Assistant Chief, Bureau of Field Operations “the Mother’s Day Child Support Sweep success is made possible because of the careful planning and execution by the teams and those who supported them. This was an outstanding effort to capture 45 individuals who owe more than a half million dollars in back child support. Custodial parents and their children depend on us to help bring delinquent parents to court to collect child support payments granted by the court to provide for their children.”
The Child Support Division received assistance from deputies in the Domestic Violence Intervention Division, Civil/ Landlord & Tenant Division, Internal Affairs Division, Planning and Research Division, and the Warrants and Fugitive Division.
