Union County Sheriff’s officers round-up deadbeat dads

UNION COUNTY — Officers from the Union County Sheriff’s Office arrested more than three dozen people on warrants for unpaid child support across Union County this week.

During a three-day intensive Non-Support Sweep, teams of officers knocked on doors in every municipality in the county making 38 arrests without incident.

The officers cleared 48 warrants for a total of $970,332 that is owned in back child support.

“Once again, I am proud of the professionalism of these officers who can safely apprehend these men so they can face their responsibilities,” said Union County Sheriff Ralph Froehlich.

The pre-holidays roundup of deadbeat dads is part of a statewide effort to apprehend those who owe back child support.
