31 people were arrested for outstanding child support payments, according to Passaic County Sheriff Richard Berdnik.
Authorities said 39 warrants valued $778,682 were closed as a result of last week’s sweep.
Berdnik said the sweep was part of a statewide effort conducted in conjunction with the New Jersey State Sheriff’s Association to clamp down on those who owe child support payments.
“Individuals need to know that they will be arrested if they do not fulfill their court ordered obligations to their family,” Berdnik said. “The enforcement of child support obligations is an important function that PCSO will continue to fulfil throughout the year.”
