The Los Alamos Police Department will be hosting its bi-annual Drug Take Back Day 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. this Saturday, Oct. 22 at the following locations:
- Smith’s parking lot: 751 Trinity Dr.; and
- White Rock Visitor Center: 115 State Route # 4.
This drug diversion program is a part of a national initiative by the DEA. The National Prescription Drug Take Back Day aims to provide a safe, convenient and responsible means of disposing of prescription drugs, while also educating the general public about the potential for abuse of medications.
LAPD asks the public to refrain from bringing needles to the drop off locations.
