From Jason King, Chief of PoliceDarlington Police DepartmentWith no drunken driving arrests or crashes during the time period the free taxi services were availed to the public, the Darlington Police Department considers its first ever Safe Rides Program during the Darlington Canoe Festival to be a success. A total of 86 people took advantage of the taxi services, which were provided by Al's Trucking Company. Funding for the taxis was provided through a grant the police department received from the Wisconsin Department of Transportation and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
