   The Bullhead City Police Department invites participation in the Drug Enforcement Administration’s (DEA) 12th Annual National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day on Saturday, October 22nd from 10 a.m. – noon.

     During this time, law enforcement agencies across the country will provide a venue for people who want to safely and anonymously dispose of their unwanted, unused or expired prescription medications. Studies show that a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family or friends and often from the home medicine cabinet.

     A prescription drug drop-off site will be set up outside the Bullhead City Police Department, 1255 Marina Blvd, on Saturday, October 22nd from 10 a.m. – 12 noon.  All medications collected will be turned over to the DEA for proper disposal.

     To find other drop-off sites, log on to www.DEA.gov. For more information on prescription drug abuse, log on to www.DrugFreeAZ.org.

     If you can’t make it, the Bullhead City Police Department has a permanent prescription drop-off box in the lobby during regular business hours.
