Fugitive surrender program draws big crowd in Ohio

Written by 

AKRON, Ohio (AP) - A program to help people with outstanding warrants get their troubles behind them has drawn more than 1,500 people in one northeastern Ohio city.

The four-day program in Akron wrapped on Saturday. It doesn't allow people with warrants to forego their obligations but instead helps them deal with whatever they're facing.

The Akron Beacon Journal reports most of the offenders seeking help were there for traffic-related cases. Others owed child support or were there for probation violations.

The coordinator of the program from the Ohio Attorney General's Office says taking care of warrants allows people to get a job or an apartment and it's a good thing for safety of law enforcement officers too.
