Operations Mother's Day

The Baltimore Sun outlines plans for Mother's Day child support enforcement.
No, the Baltimore City Sheriff's Office is not going after mothers on Mother's Day, but deputies are going after child support offenders.

Consider it their Mother's Day gift to the city.

Deputies will be out again before dawn Friday morning rounding up even more suspects. So far, they've arrested 48 offenders.

Sheriff John W. Anderson asked deputies to try and serve 250 outstanding child support warrants. “As the Sheriff, I recognize this is a priority issue effecting families in Baltimore City," he said in a statement. "The Sheriff’s Office role in enforcing these warrants is unfortunately often the only method to insure that an absent parent will provide financial support for their children.”
