Prescription Drug Drop Off Day 2015
May 9, 2015 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pmFree
Sarnia Police Service is participating in a province-wide public safety initiative to encourage Ontario residents to dispose of old and unused prescription medication in a secure and environmentally-friendly manner. Police in communities across Ontario recognize prescription drug abuse can lead to increases in a wide spectrum of violent acts, property crimes and accidental poisonings. We support this excellent initiative as another way to reduce this threat to public safety in a secure manner.
Sarnia Police Service will be hosting a collection site on Prescription Drug Drop-Off Day on Saturday, May 9, 2015 at 555 North Christina Street, which is Sarnia Police headquarters. The drop off time will be between the hours of 10 AM and 2 PM. Citizens wishing to dispose of outdated, unused and unwanted prescription drugs may do so anonymously at Sarnia Police Headquarters without having to get out of their vehicles. The Sarnia Police command post will be on site in the front parking lot with uniformed officers present to collect the drugs. Drivers are asked to enter the parking lot using the Christina Street entrance.
This is the third year the Sarnia Police Service has participated in this campaign. Over the last two campaigns members of the service collected 37 pounds of medications.
Prescriptions Drug Drop-off Day is proudly supported by the Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police (OACP).
