The Los Alamos Police Department facilitated another DEA sponsored drug take back day Saturday, April 29.
Two collections locations were staffed by officers for citizens to turn in unwanted and unused prescription medications at the Los Alamos Smith’s Marketplace and the White Rock Visitor Center.
Despite the snow storm LAPD collected 32 pounds of prescription medications.
This national take-back initiative continues to be a proactive measure to keep prescription medication out of the wrong hands. LAPD maintains a drug take-back box at LAPD year-round and can arrange drop-offs with the Agency.
