UPDATE: About three dozen New Year's Eve partiers from Winnebago County made it home safely early this morning thanks to the Winnebago County Sheriff's Department.

Deputies offered free rides home for the thirty-third consecutive year, starting at 11 p.m. The only catch was you had to be picked up and dropped off in Winnebago County. The service was offered until 4 a.m.


WINNEBAGO COUNTY (WIFR) -- The Winnebago County Sheriff's Office is holding its 33rd annual Sheriff's New Year's Eve Ride Home Program.
