Union County Sheriff’s Officers Rounds Up Deadbeat Dads


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 thirty-eight 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.
