305 people took advantage of Operation Safe Surrender

The crackdown on open warrants encouraged people to turn themselves in and resulted in the arrest of 305 people for a total of 438 charges. Four of the people who turned themselves in were jailed.

Officials said that those who took advantage of Operation Safe Surrender will be given favorable consideration by the court. There are still 6,000 open warrants, so the program is far from over.

"This is a three-step process. The first step was the website. The second step we've done was Operation Safe Surrender. The third step is for those of you who've chosen not to participate in either of the first two steps. Don't get comfortable, because we're coming," said Syracuse Police Chief Frank Fowler.
