Safe Surrender Baby Program: a parent may surrender a newborn to any on-duty firefighter or hospital emergency room employee within the City of Stockton. A parent who is unable or unwilling to care for a newborn can surrender the infant within seventy two hours of birth without fear of being prosecuted, as long as the baby shows no signs of abuse or neglect. The purpose of the law is to provide a safe place for the newborn when a parent feels he or she cannot handle the responsibility.
