• Indiana State Police Partners again with the DEA in Fourth Drug Take Back Day

    April 27, 2012 No comments

    The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) is sponsoring the fourth nationwide “Prescription Drug Take Back” initiative which will take place tomorrow.  The “Take Back” initiative seeks to prevent prescription drug abuse and theft.  Collection sites will be set up nationwide for expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs to be disposed of for destruction.  This service is free and anonymous with no questions asked.  The only restriction is we will not accept new or used needles.  This program is intended for liquid and pill medications. 

    The Drug Take Back events have proven to be a popular and safe method for the public to legally and safely dispose of prescription drugs that are no longer needed or have expired.  The Indiana State Police are pleased to partner with the DEA again, and as in the past, the drugs may be dropped off at any Indiana State Police Post, except the Toll Road Post, tomorrow between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.
