BROOKLYN - Project Safe Surrender is back, giving Brooklyn residents a chance to resolve warrants for minor offenses without fear of being arrested.

The program allows offenders to turn themselves in, see a judge and get the warrant cleared from their records. According to the Kings County District Attorney's Office, there are about 250,000 outstanding warrants in the borough for offenses that include loitering, trespassing and possessing small amounts of marijuana.

Anyone interested in taking advantage of the initiative can go to Mount Pisgah Baptist Church on Tompkins Avenue in Bed-Stuy on Friday and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
