Project Safe Surrender
Thursday, December 1st, 2011
This weekend there’s an opportunity to resolve outstanding warrants (no felonies, or anything through the DMV or MTA, however). Project Safe Surrender on December 2 and 3 from 9am to 3pm:
Brooklyn clergy, partnering with the Brooklyn District Attorney’s Office, the New York State Office of Court Administration, the Legal Aid Society and the New York City Police Department offer the opportunity for individuals with warrants/summons to turn themselves in to clergy and law enforcement and to have their warrants/summons lifted and their cases adjudicated in a safe environment. This is not a pardon; but rather a solution that is favorable.
Outstanding warrants they can help with include:
· Unlawful possession of alcohol under age 21
· Consumption of alcohol in public
· Aggressive solicitation
· Unlawful possession of handcuffs
· Riding a bicycle on the sidewalk
· Making unreasonable noise
· Animal nuisance
· Failure to have a dog license
· Unleashed dog
· Disorderly conduct
· Unlawfully in a park after hours
· Failure to comply with posted signs in park
· Marijuana possession – New!
· Smoking marijuana – New!
