The Bullhead City Police Department will be participating in the Drug Enforcement Administration’s (DEA) Annual National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day on Saturday, October 28th.
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, 1255 Marina Boulevard, on Saturday, October 28th from 1
0 a.m. – 2 p.m.  All medications collected will be turned over to the DEA for proper disposal.
DEA and its partners will collect tablets, capsules, patches, and other solid forms of prescription drugs. The local Smith’s Food and Drug Store pharmacy will be joining the event to allow residents the opportunity to also turn in liquids, syringes and other sharps. Illegal drugs will not be accepted. Visit: Take Back Day (dea.gov) to find a collection site nearest you!
     If you can’t make it, the Bullhead City Police Department has a permanent and secure prescription drug drop-off slot –
for tablets, capsules, patches, and other solid forms of prescription drugsin the lobby during regular business hours, Monday through Friday.
