Winn. Co. Sheriff's Office offering rides home on New Year's Eve


If you live in Winnebago County and you find yourself too intoxicated to drive after your New Year's celebrations, the Winnebago County Sheriff's Office is available to help.

The department will carry out the 32nd Annual Sheriff's New Year's Eve Ride Home Program from 11:00 p.m. December 31 to 4:00 a.m. January 1.

The rides are free, but because New Year's Eve is such a busy time for the Sheriff's Office, it's recommended that you try to make alternate arrangements prior to calling them for a ride.

However, if you or a friend has had too much to drink and need a ride home, call the Sheriff's Office at 815-639-4674 and they will take you from any location within Winnebago County to your Winnebago County home.

The goal of the program is to reduce the number of drunk drivers and keep the holiday safe for all.
