Fugitive Safe Surrender, the Cleveland-based program that allowed tens of thousands of people to come to justice peacefully, is gaining financial and political support since the U.S. Marshal Service ended it to save money.

On Thursday, U.S. Marshal Peter Elliott told more than 150 volunteers the program would be better than ever. The volunteers worked to help a record 7,431 people surrender in Cleveland.

Sam Miller donated $100,000 this week to keep the program alive. State Attorney General Mike DeWine promised to continue the program. On the national level, Senator Sherrod Brown is pushing legislation that would keep the program on a national level.
