Greenwich Police and Riverside Service Team-Up to Stop Drunk Driving

By Richard Kaufman

The Greenwich Police Department and Riverside Service are teaming up this holiday season to prevent drunk driving.

Al Jagodzinski, owner of Riverside Service, is offering all Greenwich residents a free safe ride home for themselves and their car.

Beginning Nov. 15 through Jan. 2, you can contact the GPD at the non-emergency number of 203-622-8004 and arrangements will be made for you and your vehicle.

“If one Greenwich resident uses the free service, it’s a success,” said GPD Chief, James Heavey, in a written statement Thursday.

In 2018, the GPD arrested 93 motorists for driving while under the influence.
