YOUNGSTOWN - The opportunity for people who have a non-violent warrant to turn themselves in is returning to the Mahoning Valley.
Beginning Thursday, the Fugitive Safe Surrender program will come to First Presbyterian Church on Wick Avenue.
The program, run by the Ohio Attorney General's Office, allows people with outstanding warrants of a non-violent nature, either felony or misdemeanors, to turn themselves in.
The program runs Thursday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
This is the fourth surrender event being held in the state this year and Mahoning is the largest county it has taken place in, said Dan Tuerney, a spokesman for the state Attorney General's Office.
Tuerney said it is estimated that Mahoning County has more than 15,000 outstanding non-violent misdemeanor warrants.
