Lexington PD participating in National Drug Take Back Day
Lexington, SC (April 26, 2018) – The Lexington Police Department, along with the Lexington/Richland Alcohol and Drug Abuse Council (LRADAC) and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), will be participating in the National Drug Take Back Day on Saturday, April 28, 2018.
The National Drug Take Back Day event will be held at the CVS Pharmacy which is located at 5608 Sunset Blvd. in Lexington, South Carolina and it will begin at 10:00 a.m. and will end at 2:00 p.m.
The Lexington Police Department tent will be set up in the parking lot and those interested in dropping off discarded prescription drugs can bring them there.
All prescription drugs collected will be turned over to the DEA for proper disposal.
Chief Terrence Green says, “Addiction to prescription medications continues to be on a dangerous rise and has an effect on families in the Town of Lexington community and beyond. Events like these are the perfect opportunity to take a few minutes to clean your medicine cabinet to ensure that these dangerous drugs are disposed of safely and are kept out of the hands of those who would abuse them.”
