But a program in northeast Ohio next week will work the other way around-- it will offer fugitives a chance to turn themselves in. Safe Surrender programs give people an opportunity to clear their conscience and safely pay their debt to society. In the past, they've reigned in over 1,000 fugitives in the region.
