National Prescription Drug Take-Back Initiative
On Saturday, October 28, 2017, 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 14th 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 Pill Take Back Initiative, the Police Department will also use this opportunity to showcase its permanently installed drop boxes in each district station and police headquarters. 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, October 28, 2017, 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 and police headquarters which will serve as collection sites.
