15 ARRESTED IN CHILD SUPPORT WARRANT ROUNDUP, “OPERATION MOTHER’S DAY”: Jefferson County, Arkansas – April 28, 2016 – With just over a week until Mother’s Day, the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office conducted a child support warrant roundup that led to the arrest of 15 individuals for failure to pay child support.    

 

Operation Mother’s Day, which involved Tri-County Drug Task Force Investigators and deputies from the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office warrants, civil, uniformed patrol, and criminal investigation division, was considered a success.

 

"Our deputies and investigators made a concentrated effort directed at orders of child support body attachments for this endeavor."

 

In addition to executing and effecting the arrest of numerous individuals for unpaid child support, deputies and investigators served outstanding warrants on individuals for other offenses ranging from failure to appear to possession of a controlled substance.

 

“With the continuation of operations such as “Operation Mother’s Day”, we recognize all parents who support their children, and encourage all parents to assume responsibility for improving the economic and social well-being of their children.”

 

“In 2007, as the newly elected Sheriff of Jefferson County, Sheriff Robinson first introduced his ideas concerning the interest of conducting an operation to crack down on deadbeats. During our first operational briefing, I remember him saying, “For too long deadbeats have been able to remain anonymous and able to skirt their financial and legal responsibilities with no shame. Not anymore. Parents have a moral and legal obligation to make regular child support payments. Thus came “Operation Mother’s Day”, where our agency dedicated the entire operation primarily to single mother’s and on very rare occasions single fathers and children who were not receiving child support as ordered by the courts. We began posting the photos, names and money owed by these deadbeats to social media and our agencies website under a section designated exclusively to “deadbeats”.

 

“Hours after we launched our very first “Mother’s Day Operation”, we received calls from a number of individuals who wanted to either catch back up on their payments or turn themselves in to spare the embarrassment of being featured on our websites or being arrested at their place of employment. The issue is about awareness and accountability.”

 

To avoid arrest and jail, those who have fallen behind or defaulted on their child support payments, but do not have warrants for their arrest should contact the Office of Child Support Enforcement at (870) 534-5271 to arrange payments.  Parents with child support warrants, who remain non-compliant through Friday, April 29, 2016 can surrender themselves to the W.C. “Dub” Brassell Adult Detention Center or risk being arrested at a later date.
