|The State's Attorney's Office is committed to combating the negative impact of bad checks passed to local merchants. Millions of dollars are lost every year to 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 the losses, and increased taxes to cover the additional costs for law enforcement and prosecution.
