On Saturday, April 27 the Los Alamos Police Department will be conducting its biannual DEA Drug Take Back Day which will be held in the north LAPD parking lot (off Central Avenue) from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
This drug diversion program is a part of a national initiative by the DEA. The National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day aims to provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposing of prescription drugs, while also educating the general public about the potential for abuse of medications.
Along with the drug collection, the Office of Emergency Management will be available to enroll community members in the CodeRED Emergency Alert System. The CodeRED system keeps the community informed of emergencies that occur in the Los Alamos area. There will also be pamphlets with information regarding wildfire and evacuation information available.
If you have any questions, please contact Det. Joseph Robinson, 505.663.1888.
