The Bullhead City Police Department will be participating in the Drug Enforcement Administration’s (DEA) Annual National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day on Saturday, April 22, 2023.

On this day, 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 training room, 1255 Marina Boulevard, on Saturday, April 22nd from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.  All medications collected will be turned over to the DEA for proper disposal. The DEA’s Take Back Day events provide an opportunity for Americans to prevent drug addiction and overdose deaths. DEA and its partners will collect tablets, capsules, patches, and other solid forms of prescription drugs. Liquids (including intravenous solutions), syringes and other sharps, and illegal drugs will not be accepted.

If you can’t make it, the Bullhead City Police Department has a permanent and secure prescription drug drop-off slot in the lobby during regular business hours, Monday through Friday.
