Silver or paper, it is a nice legal way for police officers to add to the salaries.  And it saves the city the cost of feeding the miscreants in the city jail.  :)

'They look like sailors, let's grab them and take them back to a ship, there's usually money involved ....'  I wonder whether the hapless sailors were allowed to go back ashore and continue to enjoy their hours of leave?

I'm pretty sure they weren't allowed to continue to enjoy their leave, since they were already written down as absentees without leave.

There just wasn't a reward offered for their return. :)
