Fugitive Safe Surrender

Fugitive Safe Surrender is a creative, and highly successful initiative that encourages persons with non-violent felony or misdemeanor warrants to voluntarily surrender to the law in a faith-based or other neutral setting. Fugitive Safe Surrender offers individuals with felony and misdemeanor warrants the ability to turn themselves in to law enforcement and have their cases judged in a safe environment.

Goals

  • To reduce the risk to law enforcement officers who pursue fugitives, to the neighborhoods in which they hide, and to the fugitives themselves.
  • To clear up court dockets and paperwork to allow them to more efficiently service the community.
