Back to Front Page




On Saturday, Sept. 29, 2012, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) is sponsoring the fifth nationwide “Prescription Drug Take Back” initiative, and the Indiana State Police is again participating.

The “Take Back” initiative seeks to prevent prescription drug abuse and theft. Collection sites will be established nationwide for expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs to be collected for destruction.

This service is free and anonymous with no questions asked. The only restriction: new or used needles will not be accepted. This program is intended for liquid and pill medications only.

The Indiana State Police is pleased to partner with the DEA again, and as in the past, the drugs may be dropped off at any ISP post, except the Toll Road Post, between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 29.
