Warwick Police Department Headlines

Colonel Stephen M. McCartney and the Community Services Division of the Warwick Police Department would like to announce an important effort called the Safe Rides Program being conducted for a second year in a row. The Safe Rides Program is being done in collaboration with the Warwick Police Department and the Warwick Citizens Police Academy Alumni Association. The goal is to reduce DUI-related crashes, reduce incidents of drunk driving, and offer residents an alternative to being arrested for DUI during the St. Patrick's Day holiday in the City of Warwick. Bars and liquor serving establishments throughout Warwick will be notified of the program and are encouraged to promote this free program to their patrons.

People are urged to call 401-468-4200 for a ride anytime between the hours of 6 pm and midnight on St. Patrick's Day. Citizen volunteers will be dispatched to establishments in the City and provide citizens a safe, free ride home anywhere within the City of Warwick if they need a ride or have had too much to drink.

For more information about the Safe Rides Program, please go to the Warwick Police Department web-site; or contact Community Police Sgt John Kelly at 401-468-4319
