MOUNT CLEMENS, MI – Sheriff Anthony Wickersham and the Macomb County Friend of the Court are announcing a week-long bench warrant “sweep” in an effort to arrest individuals with outstanding warrants for non-payment of child support.
The Sheriff’s Friend of the Court Enforcement Unit will devote extra resources to accomplish this endeavor. The week long sweep will begin Monday, September 16, 2019.
“We encourage individuals with bench warrants for non-payment of support to appear at the Friend of the Court between the hours of 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. to resolve their warrants. If an individual appears with a good faith effort we will work with them for a positive resolution.” – Thomas Blohm, Director of Friend of the Court
The Sheriff’s Office and the Friend of the Court are announcing this sweep (in advance) to afford those with outstanding bench warrants the opportunity to appear at the Friend of the Court Office and avoid arrest. Additionally, any individuals who voluntarily appear will be given the opportunity to have their circumstances reviewed to determine if they qualify for a special program that can help substantially reduce state-owed arrearages. The Macomb County Friend of the Court Office is located at 10 N. Main St, Mt. Clemens, MI 48043.
NOTE: Should anyone in the public wish to provide a tip regarding the whereabouts of an individual with an outstanding Friend of the Court warrant, please call (586) 469-5756 between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.
