TULSA, Okla. (KTUL) — The Bartlesville Police Department is once again offering a service to community members this St. Patrick's Day to prevent drunk drivers from getting out onto the roads.
From 10 p.m. on March 17 to 2 a.m. on March 18, residents who need a ride within the city limits of Bartlesville can call dispatch at (918) 338-4001 and request a free ride home from the department.
BPD officers will come to your location and give you a safe, sober ride home.
Bartlesville Police Chief Tracy Roles says the goal of the event is to prevent drunk drivers from driving in the city.
