Wilton Police Lieutenant Hartman Speaks to Safe Rides Student Volunteers

Wilton Police Lieutenant Hartman addressed 175 Wilton Safe Rides student volunteers at their training this past Sunday, September 11 at Wilton Family YMCA.

Wilton Police explain, "Any student from Wilton High School (WHS) needing a ride home for any reason can call 203-834-CARE and a SafeRides student volunteer will be dispatched to safely drive the passenger home. All calls, names and destinations are kept completely confidential, with no questions asked."

Wilton Safe Rides is a student-run program, hosted at Trackside Teen Center, that aims to eliminate driving under the influence. Safe Rides will pick up students from 10pm-2am on Friday and Saturday nights and bring them safely home, free of charge.
