Drug Take Back in Dudley: the results

On Saturday, April 28th, the Dudley Police Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) conducted another prescription drug "Take Back" event.  For the twelfth time in Dudley, the public had the opportunity to provide for safe disposal of expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs. The service was free, anonymous, and well attended.  Over 70 people dropped off a large quantity of prescription medications, enough to fill 5 boxes.  The department also had three medical sharp disposal boxes on hand for needles and related materials.  These were filled to capacity.  It was another successful event and the Dudley Police encourage everyone to take advantage of these programs in the future. The next one is tentatively planned for the fall of 2018.
