Jail N’ Bail to Benefit Special Olympics of Connecticut

News Story: October 29, 2013

Jail N’ Bail to benefit Special Olympics of Connecticut will take place in the courtyard outside of 63’s on Tuesday, November 5, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

What is a Jail N’ Bail event?

- Individuals on campus fill out a warrant ($5.00 donation each) for a person they want to be “arrested.”

- Public safety officers and local police officers make the arrest and will present the arrestee to a panel of judges.

- The judges set bail based on charges that may include poor dress, messy hair, missing class, sleeping in too late, poor attitude, etc.

- The arrestee is placed in a mock jail cell and can call upon friends and family members to raise bail – all monetary donations will benefit Special Olympics of Connecticut.  All arrestees must be willing participants and may leave the jail at any time, to attend class, etc. Participation in this event may NOT be used as an excuse for missing class.

Warrants can be purchased in advance at Public Safety and on site during the event.
