Entry Description

On Saturday, September 29, 2012 the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) is sponsoring the fifth nationwide “Prescription Drug Take Back” initiative.  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, and as in the past, the drugs may be dropped off at any Indiana State Police Post, except the Toll Road Post, on Saturday, September 29, 2012, between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. The Indiana State Police Capitol Police Division will also host a drop off site on September 28th, from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on Robert Orr Plaza in Indianapolis, between the government buildings.
