Description of project Chose select people from around the community who we thought could raise good bail money(we had to ask permission prior to arrest for it not to be considered kidnapping!) We worked with the local RCMP.
One RCMP member, one Kinette member went to arrest citizens for being "Community do-Gooders" Brought them back to a mock jail at the local grocery store, and a judge gave them a bail amount. They then sat in jail until they raised bail, then were released.
Service Hours 21-50
