Our primary goal is to assure full restitution for the victim - including a service fee - without adding to the financial burden of the criminal justice system.
Merchants in Adams County benefit from the Program because they receive restitution without paying any fees.
First-time dishonored check writers benefit from the opportunity to avoid criminal prosecution by completing an offender education course. However, if the person fails to respond to the Program, the case will be referred for prosecutorial review.
Finally, an improved economic climate in Adams County helps us all, businesses and individuals alike.
If dishonored checks are a concern for your business, I encourage you to participate. Please take a few minutes to explore this site to learn more about the Check Enforcement Program. Learn how this Program can benefit you. Then feel free to register and use the Program.
