On Tuesday August 29th at the Kissimmee Civic Center, Osceola County will host “Safe Surrender Day”, which offers individuals with non-violent misdemeanor warrants an opportunity to turn themselves in to law enforcement and have their cases adjudicated in a safe and non-hostile environment.
This will be the fourth time this event has been organized in Osceola County, and brings together a partnership of representatives from the Ninth Judicial Circuit Court, Osceola County Government, Osceola County Corrections Department, Osceola County Clerk of Court, Judicial Correction Services, Public Defender’s Office, State Attorney’s Office, Kissimmee Police Department, St. Cloud Police Department and the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office.
To be clear, “Safe Surrender Day” is not an amnesty program, but it creates an opportunity for favorable considerations, typically in the form of reduced fines, probation requirements or a new court date. The program allows fugitives to take responsibility for their actions, stop running from the law and clear their outstanding Osceola County warrants.
Individuals who are interested in taking advantage of “Safe Surrender Day” should arrive with a valid photo ID and NO weapons or children allowed. The event will take place on Tuesday, August 29, 2017, from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the Kissimmee Civic Center.
