This Saturday, residents can dispose of unwanted medication safely by bringing it to headquarters from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m.
The effort is part of National Prescription Drug Take Back Day, in coordination with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency.
Police say there will be no questions asked, and participants will remain anonymous.
This initiative is vital to public safety and public health, and provides a secure option to those who want to dispose of unwanted, unused or expired prescription drugs, police say.
According to police, each day 2,500 teens use prescription drugs to get high for the first time. The majority of these drugs, police say, are obtained from family and frirends and the home medicine cabinet.
In 2011, the public turned in more than 121 tons of pills and other prescription drugs.
