    This confidential program is designed to provide the active DPA member with transportation home when they are in an incapacitated state and unable to operate a motor vehicle.

    Police-Taxi

    The member contacts Cowboy Cab Company, who then comes to the location of the member and transports him/her home. The cost of this service is then paid by the DPA. This confidential service is designed so the member does not become involved in a situation that would be unsafe for the member or the public.
