Like police officers and firefighters, child support workers are selflessly dedicated to helping others, in this case, children.
In Savannah, among other places, noncustodial parents sometimes get hot under the collar when child support enforcement personnel attempt to collect overdue child support.
Sometimes these parents even get violent.
Which, sadly, makes child support enforcement a hazardous career, just like law enforcement and first response.
Savannah is addressing the dangers of the job proactively, training staffers in self defense.
