Child Support


The investigators assigned to Child Support have increased the use of Penal Code Section 270 which makes it a crime not to provide support to your children. This led to locating many parents who were not providing for their children. The investigators also publish the list of "most wanted" parents in the local newspaper. This program has been a tremendous success.
