The project would primarily target the 53206 zip code area. People with outstanding arrest warrants could surrender to authorities at faith-based locations. Groups would help guide those individuals in paying their debts to society, enabling them to shed outstanding issues and move forward with their lives.

A steering committee would decide which offenses are eligible and what the penalties would be for those individuals, if they surrender. MICAH estimates 50,000 people might qualify. They are wanted for such offenses as burglary, certain drug crimes and unpaid traffic fines.

WUWM has begun a series of reports on youth violence in Milwaukee. That’s in light of the upcoming summer months, which are often a rough time for the city. Friday, we visit what is arguably the most dangerous zip code area for both kids and others. 53206. In 2005 and 2006, 51 homicides were recorded there. That’s more than twice as many as in neighboring areas. A few decades ago, residents say 53206 was thriving. WUWM’s LaToya Dennis explores the changes that have taken place.
