Residents can resolve low-level warrants this week at a joint event between the Onondaga County District Attorney’s Office, Victory Temple Fellowship Church and Project H.E.A.L.
The event, called Syracuse Safe Surrender, will be held Wednesday from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. at Victory Temple Fellowship Church.
The church, run by Pastor Bernard Alex, is located at 817 E. Willow St., on Syracuse’s North Side.
People with warrants from Syracuse police for traffic infractions, local law violations and non-criminal violations can come to have them cleared up.
Criminal and felony warrants can not be resolved at the event.
Project H.E.A.L., which stands for Helping Everyone Accept Love, is a nonprofit that plans to offer wraparound services and hold restorative justice circles. Zeruiah Jones and Chanel Beard-Frias, a licensed master social worker, founded the nonprofit in Syracuse this year.
“It shows the community that it doesn’t stop here, that there is somebody that’s here and if our organization cannot help we’re more than willing to refer out,” Jones said. “We have a lot of resources in the community.”
