On Friday, November 4, the Ohio State Bar Foundation recognized the efforts of the Fugitive Safe Surrender program by naming it the "Outstanding Program for 2010." The program's success is due to the work of MSASS researchers like Daniel J. Flannery, PhD, director of the Begun Center.

The program has operated 23 times in 21 cities, and Flannery’s research group has been on the ground at each event, collecting and analyzing data from the participants.

Last fall, the program logged a national record when 7,431 people surrendered in the city of Cleveland. Learn more about the award from The Ohio State Bar Foundation website.
