The illegal use of prescription drugs is a major problem we face as a community. Unfortunately, our homes can be the access point for these drugs. The Sheriff’s Office is pleased to announce the installation of secure collection drop-boxes at several law enforcement facilities across the county. If you have expired, unused or unwanted prescription medication stored in your home, community members are encouraged to come to any of the facilities listed below where unwanted medications may be turned in anonymously.
Most drop-off sites are only available weekdays between 8:00 am and 5:00 pm. You may wish to call ahead to confirm available hours at your intended site.
