The O’Neill Police Department is letting the public choose who should be “arrested” for a day.
To help raise funds to support the K-9 Unit, “arrest warrants” will be sold until the day of the event on July 15th.
The Police Department had the same fundraiser two years ago and was a huge success.
“A lot of people loved it,” K-9 Commander Officer John Wilson said. “They would come in and get their warrants issued and they have a lot of fun telling their bosses or coworkers, friends or family, that they get to go sit in a dog cage for a while.”
The people who are in “jail” can sit the allotted time, or can pay the “bail” amount to get out.
All of the money raised supports the K-9 Unit that has a five-year-old Belgian Malinois named Aisha.
“Our K9 Division runs on donations.” Officer Wilson said.
The “arrest warrants” are sold at the O’Neill Police Department and are $5 each. One “arrest warrant” will get one person put into jail. Officer Wilson is hoping to have the same outcome as the previous “Jail N’ Bail”.
“It was really fun, a whole lot of community members got involved.” K-9 Commander Officer John Wilson.
