Drug takeback day set for April 27

-A A +A

LAPD > Any and all prescription narcotics will be accepted, no questions asked

By Tris DeRoma

The Los Alamos Police Department is having a “Drug Takeback Day” on April 27. Any resident who has prescription drugs they are no longer using are invited to drop them off at pre designated drop off points, no questions asked.
According to LAPD Commander Randy Foster, the LAPD has been in the program for two years, and it’s a popular one in Los Alamos.
“The number of drugs we take in at each event can be measured in pounds,” said Cmr Foster.
The event will feature two locations. One will be at the Los Alamos Medical Center, located at 3917 West Road on the east side of the parking lot. The other location will be in White Rock in the White Rock Public Library’s parking lot, located at 133 Longview Drive.
“The DEA (Drug Enforcement Agency) allowed us to do a second site so senior citizens living in White Rock wouldn’t have to travel up the hill,” said LAPD Sgt. Oliver Morris, who is in charge of the program.
