Southfield Police Host Prescription Drug ‘Take Back Day’

SOUTHFIELD (WWJ) – The Southfield Police Department is partnering with the Drug Enforcement Administration to remove potentially dangerous controlled substances from local medicine cabinets. 

WWJ’s Terri Lee reports the effort is part of National Prescription Drug “Take-Back Day.”

It’s a one-day effort to give the public an opportunity to turn in expired, unwanted or unused medications to law enforcement officers for destruction. 

Collection boxes will be placed in the lobby of the Southfield Police Department Saturday, April 30, between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.

No questions will be asked and no ID will be required.
