Jackson police thank participants of Drug Take Back event | Community Spirit
JACKSON, MO (KFVS) - Jackson Police would like to thank everyone who participated in the annual Drug Enforcement Agency sponsored Drug Take Back event that occurred April 27 in Jackson, Mo.
Jackson Police say they collected 103 pounds of prescription medication that was turned over to the DEA for proper disposal. These prescriptions were collected not only last Saturday but in the collection box located in the lobby of the Jackson Police Department.
Citizens who wish to get rid of unused, opened and no longer needed prescription medications to be disposed of properly with no questions asked, may bring them into the police department 24 hours a day and place them in the collection box. They say they will not accept needles.
For more information, you can contact Corporal Rick Whitaker at 573-243-3151 or email@example.com.
