Prescription Drug Drop-Off Program
October 28, 2011, 10:30 PM
SIOUX FALLS, SD -
Police need your help keeping prescriptions drugs out of the wrong hands.
Saturday is the drug take back program at the Sioux Falls Law Enforcement Center. This program has collected over 500 pounds of prescribed medications in the last year.
You're encouraged to drop off any unused or unwanted prescriptions to help decrease drug abuse.
"Prescription drugs are a growing concern,” Sam Clemens with the Sioux Falls Police Department said. “They are the highest abused drug now, or the fastest. The access to those is coming from households.”
The drop off is from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. You do not have to fill out any forms.
