Image: Jail n BailLt. Governor of Connecticut Michael Fedele will appear as a celebrity judge at Fairfield University's third annual Jail N' Bail event to raise money for Special Olympics Connecticut. The event, which will be held on Wednesday, April 21 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., will take place in the traffic circle in front of the John A. Barone Campus Center.
 
For a $5 donation, students, faculty, and staff can fill out a "warrant" for someone's arrest. Public Safety then "arrests" that person and brings him/her to a "jail cell" located outside the Campus Center, where a panel of judges sets the "bail" that must be paid. Those arrested will then use phones to call colleagues, friends and family to raise money for their bail.
 
Also lending their support to the event are the Connecticut State Police and police officers from Fairfield, Stratford, and Bridgeport. Food, mug shots, and t-shirts will be provided for all participants.
 
For the past two years, Fairfield's Jail N' Bail has placed among the top five fundraisers in Connecticut's Law Enforcement Torch Run, the largest statewide campaign to raise money for the Special Olympics. Fairfield University's Department of Public Safety has been supporting Special Olympics Connecticut for over 20 years.
