[ISP] Prescription Drug Tack Back Day
Start Date: 4/25/2012
End Date: 4/25/2012
Entry Description

Fort Wayne, IN-On Saturday, April 28, 2012, the Indiana State Police will be participating in a nationwide initiative headed by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) called “Prescription Drug Take Back Day.” 

The “Take Back” initiative seeks to prevent increased pill abuse and theft.  Collection sites will be set up nationwide as collection points for expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs for destruction.  This service is free, anonymous and no questions will be asked.  Citizens wishing to participate in this program may drop off their prescription drugs for disposal at the Indiana State Police, 5811 Ellison Road, Fort Wayne on Saturday, April 28th between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.

The Indiana State Police Post in Fort Wayne along with the Fort Wayne, New Haven and Allen County Police Departments and the volunteer organizations of TRIAD and RSVP currently work together in a year-long unwanted medication collection program in which each of the four law enforcement agencies maintain a permanent collection point for unwanted medications. 

Their goal is to safely and effectively collect and destroy these medications so that they don’t fall into the hands of those who shouldn’t have them, especially children, and so that they don’t contaminate our water sources by being dumped or flushed down drains.  Anyone wishing to drop off their medications can do so 24 hours a day, seven days a week at any of those four law enforcement agencies.
