Winnebago County Deputies go through defensive driving training

WINNEBAGO COUNTY, Ill. (WIFR) -- The Winnebago County Sheriff's Office is spending more time behind the wheel to make sure when they get out on the road, we all make it home safely.

Patrol deputies are practicing their defensive driving at the Chicago-Rockford International Airport, bobbing and weaving through cones to make sure they know exactly what to do if they ever need to use these same techniques on the street.

Lt. Steven Depauw says eventually the entire department will go through this defensive driving practice.
