Columbus Police Department and Community Counseling Services are taking back unwanted prescription drugs

03/25/2019


Columbus, MS- On Saturday, April 27, 2019 from 10 AM to 2 PM the Columbus Police Department, Community Counseling and Prevention Services, and the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration will give the public its 17th opportunity in nine years to prevent drug abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs.

This event is taking place at the Columbus Police Department. The Columbus Police Department is located at 1501 Main Street.

Last fall Americans turned in nearly 460 tons of prescription drugs at more than 5,800 sites operated by the DEA and almost 4,800 of its state and local law enforcement partners. Overall, in its 16 previous Take Back events, the DEA and its partners have taken in almost 11 million pounds, nearly 5,500 tons, of pills.
