Dickinson Police Department presents Jail and Bail!

Jail and Bail will be apart of the National Night Out Event on August 6, 2019.

Jail and Bail will be held August 5 from 1:00 PM- 5:00 PM at the Prairie Hills Mall and August 6 from 3:00 PM to 8:00 PM at the BAC.

The event begins with someone completing the Jail and Bail form and requesting the “arrest” of their boss, spouse, a politician, friend or co-worker. A police officer will “arrest” 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. The jailbirds make pledge calls to friends, relatives and co-workers to earn their bail. Most incarcerations last for one to two hours.

To complete the form, click on the link below.

**Must be 18 year of age to participate, and 18 years of age to nominate.

I read this WAY too literally. 🤣

This is awesome

I AM A MOM, take me to jail as long as it’s quiet and keep me for Days!! Weeks if you will!!

Someone nominated is really going to go to real jail for battery and assualt on the snitch because they damn near had a heart attack. 🤣

This sounds too good 😂😂😂

Sounds like it's time to have the entire crew arrested so I can do some fishing.

😮

I’m always innocent

Sounds like some money scam shit.

What's the point in this event??

.

Or the jail could be used to jail real inmates on officers can focus on serving our community...stop wasting taxpayers money,

Just here to show off my top fan badge. Not sure how I earned it but, hey...🤔😂

Can you nominate a police officer or judge?

Age requirement

Sherry Mueller

Alyshia Meduna

Sarah Burich

Ten years ago today, an EF3 tornado struck the southside of Dickinson with winds in excess of 150MPH, damaging hundreds of homes. Amazingly, no one was killed or seriously injured as it tore a destructive path along the Heart River.

My husband and I rushed through the rain and hail to get south to our daycare. I spent what felt like an hour in the basement with my mom and a handful of daycare kids! When all was said and done, our yard had somebody else's shed roof against our house!

Remember it well. Hopefully we fare the predicted storms tonight much better! Thanks to all the emergency personnel that made sure everyone was okay and to the National Guard for keeping our neighborhoods safe in the following days. Thanks be to God for keeping everyone safe!! 🙏🏻

Just had a dream about a tornado last night! Weird.... Still grateful everyone was ok 💜💙

Praying this was a once in a lifetime event! 🙏

The community came together and helped each other. There were lots of trees, debris and People’s memories every where.

This was a week or so after I found our we were being transferred here. We arrived July 23, '09.

I remember it well also. Thank God no one seriously injured.

It was a very scary day and night, alot of damage to our home. I want to thank again the police, fire and rescue, the national guard again for watching over our belongings and the red cross. You don't realize how important a simple bottle of water and a sandwich are until you don't have either! The atmosphere feels eerily reminiscent of that day.

I remember that day! That was crazy!

I so remember that day

I remember that day well. Still have the next day press.

Remember this like it was yesterday. NEVER want this to happen to us again! What an awful experience all the way from beginning to end.

I remember this night well I was riding with Lawrence.

Please God keep us all safe this day! No repeat!

My Moms home right in the middle but she was ok

The summer i spend sleeping on my couch due to it ripping the roof of my house on Spruce st. At the time. Thank god I live too close to mountains to live through it again..Rachael Rachael Miller

I think of it every time I drive on the south side. Tornado’s have a mind of their own!!

I remember. We were in our basement in Belfield watching the news. Belfield was supposed to get hit and the meteorologists (I won’t mention names) repeatedly said Dickinson had nothing to worry about.

I also remember this! I was with Red Cross then,and walked the path with another person handing out water ect... blessed Be no serious injuries is right Penny Sowle Lewis ♥️

I live on 6th Street SE. I didn’t live here during the storm. I can’t find my street in any of the photos. Seems the cut for photos on my side of 22 was legends. Does anyone have pictures of that area? I’m curious as to what our house went through.

For those of you bashing the weather people, please note it takes minutes, literally minutes for a storm to form! It's a prediction, and btw, weather call saved our lives!

That was the first one I'd ever seen. I had friends that lived on 3rd Ave SE, such a sad, terrifying mess

I remember it well.

This is when I started working for Braun's one week after tornado hit . So 10th anniversary for working at Braun's on July 13th 😎

I was talking to my brother on the phone...he told me his dog was growling and he was going downstairs...we lost phone reception...it was a terrible storm.

HAPPY 4th of July Weekend Dickinson! 💥💥

At 9:30AM the Dickinson Police Department received an anonymous tip of a small child riding courageously on her hot pink bicycle, wearing her helmet.

Officer T. Peters was quick to respond and made sure the child received a delicious cold ice cream cone at Dairy Queen for being safety conscious. #igotcaught

Everyone please stay safe this weekend! 🚔🇺🇸🗽
