Not So Fast: Winnebago County Reinstates New Years Eve Ride-Home Program

Ride Home Program From Winn. County_4100362690704658070

The Winnebago County Sheriff’s longstanding program, in which officers provide rides home to intoxicated New Year’s Eve revelers, will happen after all.

Loves Park based Lamonica Beverages put up $2,500 to keep the program running this year, after it was announced last week that budget cuts within the County had shuttered the initiative.  Six deputies and one dispatcher will be dedicated to giving residents, who live within the county, a ride if they’re unable to drive home safely.
