With summer coming to a close, children are still looking for one last reason to put aside some of their regular obligations. Unfortunately, this freedom often leads to higher incidences of young adults being arrested. At 3-D Bail Bonds in Hartford, CT, we commonly see the number of youth arrests rise this time of year. As local bail bondsmen, we take our obligations seriously to help protect community members from finding the wrong kind of trouble that can lead to legal repercussions.
Here are some of the main reasons this holiday weekend often leads to higher incidences of arrests:
- A Break Before the Winter Holidays: Labor Day weekend offers students a few more days of freedom before the long stretch of school—their next time off not coming until Thanksgiving. In addition, this break can lead to boredom, which, in turn, can lead to foolish decisions that result in incarceration.
- Barbecues & Parties: Just like July 4, Labor Day is often a time to enjoy barbecues and other outdoor parties before fall and winter hit, and alcohol is usually readily available. Celebrations with friends could possibly lead to underage drinking, vandalism, and other crimes.
- Nicer Weather Means More Time Out of the House: Nobody wants to venture out of the house during cold and inclement weather. That’s why when the weather warms up during summer, we see more kids coming out from their homes—and early September is still quite warm. This contributes to the rise in crimes we see this time of year.
