Southaven residents were given the chance to safely turn themselves in on Tuesday if they had a bench warrant issued for their arrest.
If these individuals were able to pay a predetermined amount towards what they owed to the court, the warrant was lifted, and they were put on a payment plan for the rest.
If they were unable to pay, the judge decided their eligibility in the program.
“Today I have seen a more willingness and welcoming from police then I have ever seen before,” said Freddie Otis. “I feel great about it.”
