Thornton Police Department will be participating in the DEA’s 15th Nationwide Prescription Drug Take-Back Day. The collection site will be at the Thornton Police Department. This will be held on Saturday, April 28, 2018, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. This national initiative provides an opportunity for the public to surrender pharmaceutical controlled substances and other medications to law enforcement officers for destruction. Expired, unused, or unwanted controlled substances in our homes are a potential source of supply for the increasing abuse of pharmaceutical drugs in the US and a risk to public health and safety every day. Please join us in reducing the growing problem. Thank you.
