DECATUR, Ga. (AP) - DeKalb County Sheriff’s deputies have made 19 arrests in an operation aimed at people who haven’t paid court-ordered child support.

Wednesday’s arrests were part of an operation that also was aimed at parents facing accusations of cruelty to children.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports (https://on-ajc.com/2hhlnhD ) that the agency calls the operation its annual holiday season “deadbeat” parent sweep.

A DeKalb Sheriff’s Office news release says that this year 174 warrants were served.
