Sheriff sets final ‘reset’ for fugitives on Saturday
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.
