OSCEOLA COUNTY, Fla. – Osceola County is hosting a “Safe Surrender” event that allows people to turn themselves in and clear outstanding warrants for non-violent misdemeanor crimes, the county announced.
The event will take place Tuesday, Oct. 18 from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. at the Kissimmee Civic Center and will allow individuals to turn themselves in in a “safe and dignified manner,” according to a statement from the county.
Participants will meet virtually with a judge at the event – and while the county said it is not an amnesty program – it does offer favorable considerations from the court, often in reduced fines, probation requirements or a new court date as an alternative to jail time.
- As long as the warrant was issued in Osceola County, individuals do not need to be residents of Osceola County to attend
- Participants must be an American citizen or legal resident to attend
- Participants must bring photo identification
For more information on the event, contact the Osceola Clerk of Circuit Court and County Comptroller Criminal Division, 407-742-3566.
