After Report for Drug Drop Off – SVPD Historic Response!

The Simi Valley Police Department participated in the DEA National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day on Saturday, April 27, 2019, from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. With an unexpected response from our community, more than 270 cars dropped off over 650 pounds of unwanted medications from chemo drugs to Fentanyl.

Per the DEA, Saturday’s event coordinated by the efforts of the Crime Analysis & Prevention Unit in partnering with our amazing SVPD Volunteers collected the largest amount of unwanted drug prescriptions within the history of the Simi Valley Police Department.

Events such as these are another way the Simi Valley Police Department is working in a collaborative effort with the public to remove unwanted medications from the streets before they are abused.

As a reminder, our Police Department provides a safe and ecological way for residents to dispose of medications. Please call our Property Room at (805) 583-6964 to make an appointment for any Tuesday or Thursday from 1:00-4:00 p.m. (excluding holidays).

The Simi Valley Police Department allows the community to bring illegal drugs to the police station and turn them in with no questions asked.

How to dispose of unwanted medications:

• Empty the contents of pill bottles into a Ziploc bag (please recycle your pill bottles at home and remember to scratch out all personal identification information).
• Leave liquids, gels, or creams in their original containers and place them in a Ziploc bag.
• Sharps such as needles, syringes and any other items used for diabetic tests will not be accepted. Sharps disposal containers are available for free from Sierra Vista Family Medical Clinic at 1227 E. Los Angeles Avenue, Simi Valley, Ca 93063, (805) 582-4000.

Please remember it is a health hazard to flush medications down drains or toilets or in the trash.

Any additional questions can be directed to the Simi Valley Police Department’s Crime Analysis & Prevention Unit at (805) 583-6253.
