Have an active warrant against you? Surrender safely in Youngstown this week

People living in Mahoning County hampered by an active warrant and constantly worried about when law enforcement will come knocking on their doors can remove that anxiety this week.

Ohio Attorney General Mike Dewine’s office, in conjunction with the Mahoning County Sheriff’s Office as well as other county police departments and support agencies, will host Operation Safe Surrender from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday at First Presbyterian Church on Wick Avenue at Wood Street.

Operation Safe Surrender offers individuals with felony and misdemeanor warrants the ability to surrender to law enforcement and have their case adjudicated, typically at a community church.

DeWine, who initiated the program, has said he believes a “faith-based atmosphere” makes it easier for those named in warrants to surrender.

The Mahoning County Clerk of Courts office has listed all those eligible to participate in the Safe Surrender program on its website at http://courts.mahoningcountyoh.gov.
