“National Prescription Drug Take-Back Initiative”

 

On April 27, 2013, The Anne Arundel County Police Department will again participate in the “National Prescription Drug Take-Back Initiative”. This initiative supervised by DEA will coordinate a collaborative effort with state and local law enforcement agencies focused on removing potentially dangerous controlled substances from our nation’s medicine cabinets. This sixth national “take-back day” will provide a unified opportunity for the public to surrender expired, unwanted, or unused pharmaceutical controlled substances and other medications to law enforcement officers for destruction. This one-day effort will bring national focus to the issue of pharmaceutical controlled substance abuse. The program provides an opportunity for law enforcement, prevention, treatment, and the business community to collaborate and establish a safe collection site for all Americans, regardless of where they reside. 

 

 In addition to participating in the National Prescription Drug Take-Back Initiative, the Police Department will also use this opportunity to showcase its permanently installed drop boxes, which are in each district station. These boxes have been installed for the purpose of assisting the public in disposing of unused or unwanted medications year round. They will also allow citizens to dispose of these medications at their convenience in a safe and secure environment. The same collection protocols established for the pill take back initiative will be in effect for the drop boxes. 

 

 

Collection Day Protocols

 

  • On Saturday, April 27, 2013, from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m., the Anne Arundel County Police Department will have a police representative at each of the county’s four districts, which will serve as collection sites.

·         Controlled, non-controlled, and over the counter substances may be collected

·         This program is anonymous and no requests for identification will be made. 

  • Participants may dispose of medication in its original container or by removing the medication from its container and disposing of it directly into the disposal box.  If an original container is submitted, the individual should be encouraged to remove any identifying information from the prescription label.

 

  • All solid dosage pharmaceutical product and liquids in consumer containers may be accepted.  Liquid products, such as cough syrup, should remain sealed in their original container.  The depositor should ensure that the cap is tightly sealed to prevent leakage.

 

  • Intravenous solutions, injectibles, and syringes will not be accepted due to potential hazard posed by blood-borne pathogens.  

 

  • Illicit substances such as marijuana or methamphetamine are not a part of this initiative and should not be placed in collection containers.  If an individual attempts to surrender an illicit controlled substance, law enforcement personnel should handle such material as abandoned property in accordance with department policy.

 

  • All participants must retain possession of their own medication during the surrender process.
