Fugitive Safe Surrender is run through the U.S. Marshals Service as a way to help nonviolent offenders resolve warrants, often without jail time.
U.S. Marshal for New Jersey James Plousis says the four-day event greatly exceeded expectations.
Some 682 had their cases resolved the day they surrendered and 1,563 were given vouchers to return to court in December. Eighty-three who surrendered at Antioch Baptist Church had no active warrants against them, and nine people were arrested.
