Winnebago County State’s Attorney Joe Bruscato in Illinois recently recognized ACA International member Harris & Harris Ltd’s work collecting unpaid court fines and fees over the last six years.
Chicago-based Harris & Harris LTD., collected $12 million for state, county and local municipalities, according to an article from the Rockford Register Star. The company, which has been working with government agencies for decades, presented a ceremonial check to the county reflecting its collections of unpaid fines and fees throughout their partnership.
“It is our firm belief that all the citizens meet their legal obligations to the court system,” Bruscato said in the article. “This partnership has been successful because of the hard work of Harris & Harris and the criminal justice partners.”
Harris & Harris also partners with the Kankakee County State Attorney’s Office, ACA International previously reported.
“The bottom line is all our citizens are benefiting from this hard work,” Bruscato said. “This is the money that continues to fund the system and makes sure that essential services are provided to the citizens.”
