National Prescription Drug Take Back Day was a success
From the Office of DeKalb County Sheriff Nick Welden:
FORT PAYNE, Ala. - This past Saturday, April 30th, was National Prescription Drug Take Back Day and with the help of the community, we collected and were able to properly destroy 16.8 pounds of medication. This is an event that allows Agencies to partner with DEA and everyone is urged to bring in old prescription medication or medication that is no longer used and drop it off so that it can properly be destroyed.
A huge thanks to the DeKalb County Sheriff's Office, DeKalb County Narcotics Unit, DeKalb County Jail Nursing Staff and CED Mental Health for all your hard work and making this event possible.
