Albany -- Dougherty County Sheriff Jamil Saba was honored Thursday for making sure deadbeat parents pay for child support.

The Sheriff was presented the Region Ten Sheriff of the Year award.

The Department of Human Resources says his office makes sure nearly one million dollars a month in child support payments are paid. Saba said "they need to be looking after their kids. If they are going to have them, they need to support them."

D.H.R. Region Manager for Child Support Ann Faircloth said "it's all about the children. And without their efforts we would not be as successful as we are."

 Jamil Saba has been the Sheriff of Dougherty County for 24 years. He is retiring in December.
