HILLSBORO, Mo. – Want to spend a night in jail? And how about paying for the privilege? The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department in eastern Missouri has come up with a novel way to pay for mattresses at a new jail addition.

Officials are offering the public a chance to stay overnight on July 31 at the recently finished addition. For $50 a person or $90 a couple, people can tour the new facility, learn more about jail, and stay overnight. They’ll receive Jefferson County “bed and breakfast” T-shirts, snacks — and souvenir mug shots.

Also included is a “get out of jail free” card. Those who want to leave early have to give another $10. Proceeds benefit the county’s jail maintenance fund.

  1. You so would. LOL. Actually I got to tour the new police station and holding cells in my neighboring town after they were built and it was really cool. It’s nice to know the only time I will see the inside of a jail cell is on a tour. 😉 [At least I hope so]

  3. I would. I might skip the picture, though – most photos of me look like mug shots.
