PONTIAC, Mich. (WWJ) – There are 2,700 men and women in Macomb County whose names are on bench warrants for not paying child support to the Friend of the Court. The Sheriff’s Department hopes to track them down as part of a four-day sweep starting today.

Macomb County Sheriff Anthony Wickersham says they are adding additional deputies to try and track down the offenders.

“The goal here is, one, to get the money to the children,” Wickersham said. “Two: get the message out to those that may be behind to at least make contact with their F.O.C. investigator.”

Wickersham says they went public with their intentions because they’re hoping offenders will decide to turn themselves in and avoid being arrested.
