BROOKLYN - Another Project Safe Surrender is being held in the borough, giving some people a chance to start over.

The program gives people with outstanding warrants and summonses for minor offenses the chance to see a judge, and often times get their cases dismissed.

The Kings County District Attorney's Office uses the initiative to help clear some of the thousands of backlogged warrants in the court system.

Charges that can be handled during a Safe Surrender event include marijuana possession, drinking alcohol in public and disorderly conduct, along with a host of other minor offenses.

The event goes from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. Friday and Saturday at the Church of the Open Door on Gold Street in Downtown Brooklyn.
