Unless you're simply referring to the death penalty, in which case I don't think many of those kinds of criminals would turn themselves in anyways.
Its three things. No death penalty, decent prisons (not overcrowded like in say california?) and relatively short jailtimes. And yes even murderers do turn themselves in (some commit suicide though). Not all of course but enough that it was mentioned in one news article specifically.
