Operation Medicine Drop Event to be Held on Wednesday, March 21, 2012
The Town of Duck Police Department, in conjunction with the United States Drug Enforcement Agency, the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation, and Safe Kids North Carolina, will participate in Prescription Drug Take-Back Day on Wednesday, March 21, 2012.
Law enforcement officers will be at the Duck Administration Building Lobby at 1200 Duck Road from 1:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. to safely and anonymously collect prescription and over-the-counter medicines, which can include tablets, capsules, syrups, and ointments. The event is open to everyone and all are encouraged to participate.
Educational material, including a display comparing different medications with candy to help prevent accidental poisonings, as well as information on substance abuse, will be provided by the Dare County Department of Public Health. A health education specialist from the Department of Public Health will also be on site to answer any questions.
Operation Medicine Drop is a nationwide program that provides the public with an opportunity to prevent poisonings, theft, and abuse, as well as to protect our waters, by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription and over-the counter medications. In its first year in 2010, Operation Medicine Drop retrieved and destroyed more than two million dosages of medications at nearly 200 take-back events across North Carolina. The average North Carolinian fills 14 prescriptions annually, which translates to over 127 million prescriptions filled statewide each year. Studies show that as much as 40% of the drugs dispensed are never used.
For more information, please contact the Town of Duck Police Department at (252) 261-1112.
