Operation Safe Surrender is an opportunity for individuals with non-violent, misdemeanor warrants to turn themselves in to law enforcement and have their warrants resolved in a safe environment.

The project is comprised of representatives from the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office, St. Petersburg Police Department, Pinellas/Pasco State Attorney and Public Defender’s Office, Clerk of Courts, and the 6th Judicial Circuit Court.

Operation Safe Surrender is NOT an amnesty program, but does offer favorable considerations from the court, often in the form of reduced fines, probation requirements or a new court date as an alternative to incarceration.  The program allows wanted individuals to take responsibility for their actions, stop running from the law and clear their outstanding warrants.  Individuals should arrive with a valid photo ID.  No weapons or children are allowed.

Similar programs have been successfully conducted in cities across the country.
