#LASD DON’T LET YOUR MEDICATIONS GO DOWN THE DRAIN, National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day 2014

#LASD - DON’T LET YOUR MEDICATIONS GO DOWN THE DRAIN, National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day 2014
 
The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department will participate in the ninth and final Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day on Saturday, September 27, 2014, between 10:00 AM and 2:00 PM.  The Sheriff’s Department encourages members of the community to take their expired, unneeded, or unwanted prescription drugs to any Safe Drug Drop-Off box located outside Los Angeles County Sheriff’s patrol stations. This is an opportunity for residents to dispose of their medications safely without harming the environment or falling into the wrong hands.  Only pills can be brought to the collection sites this Saturday.
 
In September of 2009 the new “Safe Drug Drop-Off” Program was first introduced at Lomita Sheriff’s Station.  This program was developed to provide a unique opportunity for residents to safely and anonymously drop-off expired or unused prescriptions, over-the-counter medications, syringes (sharps), and any other controlled substances.  Five years later the program continues to be successful and has expanded. Now there are 21 Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Stations participating in the “Safe Drug Drop-Off” Program. 
 
The drug disposal drop boxes are available 24-hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days a year in front of the following stations:
