Upper Marlboro, MD…The Prince George’s County Sheriff’s Child Support Enforcement Division (CSED) and Calvert County Sheriff Deputies conducted an overnight child support warrant sweep on October 8th . The sweep is the 13th joint operation conducted by the two counties and resulted in the arrest of 18 individuals whose unpaid child support arrearages totaled over $205,000.
Forty-seven deputies, including Prince George’s Sheriff’s deputies from the Domestic Violence Intervention Division (DVID), Civil/Landlord and Tenant Division, and the Warrant and Fugitive Division, comprised five teams designed to locate individuals with outstanding child support warrants. The teams began the operation with 78 writs – 57 from Prince George’s County and 21 from Calvert County. Throughout the night, deputies attempted to serve writs in Prince George’s County, Charles County, Howard County, and Montgomery County.
Saunders went on to say that the importance of the arrests in the child support enforcement process is that they enable the custodial parent to begin the process of collecting money that is crucial to the care of children in both counties – costs that might otherwise be borne by taxpayers.
