your State's Attorney, I'm always concerned about the negative impact
of bad checks passed to local businesses. Thousand of dollars are
lost every year by merchants as a result of this ongoing problem.
Bad checks affect everyone in terms of higher consumer costs that
must be passed on to offset losses, and increased taxes to cover
the additional costs for law enforcement and prosecution.
an effort to combat this problem, the Bad Check Restitution Program
has been organized to assist local merchants with bad check losses.
The primary goal of the program is to obtain full restitution for
the victim without adding to the financial burden of the criminal
time bad check offenders are given the opportunity to avoid criminal
prosecution by attending a mandatory intervention class,
in addition to paying restitution. All of this is accomplished without
any cost to the taxpayers.
interest and participation in this special program will benefit
all law-abiding citizens and help your business improve its bottom
