Collecting & Enforcing Child Support

A local government agency is raking in the bucks in child support collections. Why is it having success where other agencies struggle?
The Summit County Prosecutor's Office has collected about $20 million in criminal nonsupport funds since 2001. That's quite a lot considering Cuyahoga County, a much larger neighboring area, is touting figures in the $10 million range. Friday, Regina Brett and guests discuss enforcement of child support laws, what works and what problems still remain.Jennifer Bheam, Director, Summit County Child Support Enforcement Agency
