The Special Olympics Texas Jail-N-Bail involves a mock jail set up in a high-traffic public area, such as a shopping center. The event begins with someone calling the sponsoring agency requesting the “arrest” of their boss, spouse, a politician, friend or co-worker. An off-duty police officer or volunteer “arrests” the unsuspecting participant, serving them with a warrant. He or she is then whisked off to “jail”. When the participants arrive at the “jail”, their bail is set by a judge. With telephones and telephone books provided by the sponsoring organization, the jailbirds make pledge calls to friends, relatives and co-workers to earn their bail. Most incarcerations last for one to two hours.
