Daily Times (Primos, PA) - - NEWS - By the Times Staff

ME­DIA » The last of two sched­uled “Op­er­a­tion Re­set Satur­day” events is be­ing held Oct. 14 from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. at the Delaware County Court­house, pro­vid­ing el­i­gi­ble fugi­tives with an op­por­tu­nity to set their records straight.

Those with out­stand­ing war­rants is­sued within the ju­ris­dic­tion of Delaware County will have an op­por­tu­nity to have them cleared by means of a new court date.

“This pro­gram will clear up a num­ber of out­stand­ing war­rants in the county sys­tem, give wanted in­di­vid­u­als a chance to pay for the laws they broke through fine, pro­ba­tion, com­mu­nity ser­vice and/or jail time,” states a re­lease is­sued by the Delaware County Sher­iff’s of­fice.

The pro­gram, hosted by Sher­iff Mary McFall Hop­per, elim­i­nates po­ten­tial prob­lems or dan­gers deputies face when show up on an in­di­vid­ual’s doorsteps. It also pro­vides a more com­fort­able en­vi­ron­ment for el­i­gi­ble fugi­tives, elim­i­nat­ing po­ten­tial em­bar­rass­ment of be­ing hand­cuffed in front of fam­ily, friends and neigh­bors.

Last month, 15 fugi­tives sur­ren­dered at the de­but event, clear­ing a to­tal of 71 out­stand­ing war­rants.

The court­house is lo­cated at 210 W. Front St.
