Bad Check Program

In Whitley County, merchants and individual citizens lose thousands of dollars because of bad checks. Consumers share in these losses through higher prices. The Whitley County Prosecutor's Office has a bad check enforcement program to help merchants and consumers alike track down bad check writers, collect and return the money to the victim, and deter future offenses. Along with benefiting the merchants and consumers, this program is designed to remove some of the load from the overburdened local police and the courts. This program is for anyone who has received a bad check in Whitley County, be that a large business, a small business, or an individual. This program provides new avenues to obtain restitution, to protect the public, and to seek justice.

To participate in the program, victims should bring or send the bad check to the Prosecuting Attorney's Office. There is no cost for victims to take advantage of this program.
