ISP Partner With DEA In Fourth Drug Take Back Day

Last updated on Monday, April 16, 2012

(UNDATED) - Indiana State Police Partners again with the DEA in Fourth Drug Take Back Day.

On Saturday, April 28, 2012 the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) is sponsoring the fourth 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 they 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. Citizens wishing to participate in this program may drop off their prescription drugs for disposal at any Indiana State Police Post throughout the state (except the Toll Road) on Saturday, April 28, between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.

To locate the state police post closest to your home or business, visit: http://www.in.gov/isp/2382.htm.
