Criminal Division - Bad Check Unit

Bad checks have a tremendous impact in Douglas County.  Merchants and businesses lose hundreds of thousands of dollars each year to bad checks.  The Douglas County District Attorney’s Office is committed to recovering as much restitution as we can in bad check cases for our merchants and businesses.

The Douglas County District Attorney's Office has implemented a Bad Check Recovery Unit that provides an efficient and productive process for handling bad checks.  Under this program, some offenders will have the opportunity to avoid prosecution if they pay full restitution along with other statutory fees.  For those that aren’t eligible to participate in this program, we will prosecute them.

Please review the Bad Check Unit Handbook for more information.
