Bail or Jail – Crime Stoppers National Capital AreaDate/Time

The return of Crime Stoppers’ Bail or Jail is expected to drive strong interest and a lot of excitement in the city – both online and during the live event. By becoming a sponsor you are supporting an important local program, in which funds reward anonymous tipsters, whose information is used by law enforce- ment to solve crimes.
On Wednesday, September 26, local business leaders, community leaders, local celebrities and other supporters of National Capital Area Crime Stoppers will be charged with a fictitious crime and / or ‘arrested’, and put in “jail” at Billings
Bridge Shopping Centre in Ottawa. All Jailees must raise their bail (donation money) to be released from Crime Stoppers’ custody. But before that many Jailees will be raising their ‘bail’ online!
