March 19, 2014 ALPHARETTA, Ga. – Most people dread the thought of ending up behind bars, but members of Alpharetta and Milton volunteered for the chance to help a needy organization March 14.
The annual Jail Break was hosted by the Alpharetta Police Athletic League (PAL). Prominent members of the community were "arrested" by police officers and taken to a makeshift jail where they called friends and family to make bail. That money will go toward PAL.
This year, the "jail" was at the Alpharetta Courthouse in Crabapple, where a dozen people manned the phones, including Alpharetta Department of Public Safety Deputy Director Keith Sanders and Milton Police Chief Deborah Harrell.
Alpharetta PAL is a nonprofit group that helps children engage with police officers, firefighters and community volunteers.
