October is Crime Prevention Month

-A A +A

LAPD: Will host drop-off for old and unused prescription drugs

By Carol A. Clark

For the fourth consecutive year, the Celebrate Safe Communities initiative is working with local communities across the country during October’s Crime Prevention Month to address local crime trends and issues.  

Registered Celebrate Safe Communities sites are holding a wide variety of events and programs in surrounding neighborhoods with law enforcement agencies, schools, businesses and others to highlight crime prevention efforts and celebrate the work done to maintain safer communities.  

Locally, Los Alamos police are hosting a prescription drug depository booth from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Oct. 29, in the Los Alamos Medical Center east parking lot.

“Outdated and unused prescription drugs can accumulate and this gives our residents an opportunity to dispose of them in a safe and secure manner,” said Det. Sgt. Oliver Morris who is the supervisor of the LAPD Investigations Division, which will be manning the booth.

Last year, the public turned in more than 242,000 pounds of prescription drugs through 4,000 take-back sites across the nation. In Los Alamos,  residents dropped off expired and unused prescription drugs as well as drugs from deceased family members that they didn’t know what to do with.
