Some Brooklyn residents are getting an opportunity to wipe the slate clean.
'Project Safe Surrender' is underway at St. Augustine's Episcopal Church.
Organizers, including the Brooklyn District Attorney's Office, are helping people get their outstanding warrants and summonses taken care of.
The goal is to give offenders a setting outside the courtroom where they can deal with their issues and prevent more serious problems from popping up down the road.
Organizers say no arrests will be made, and attorneys and legal advocates are on hand to work with those who come in.
"I believe y'all should do this more often, give more people opportunities so the courthouse doesn't have to be packed all the time," said one person outside the event. "You can just go to different places in the community where they're doing it and get it cleared up there."
The program runs again on Saturday from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m.
