BULLHEAD CITY — The Bullhead City Police Department will be participating in the Drug Enforcement Administration’s Annual National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day on from 10 a.m. to noon April 27 at the Bullhead City Police Department, 1255 Marina Blvd.

Law enforcement agencies across the country will provide a venue for people who want to safely and anonymously dispose of their unwanted, unused or expired prescription medications. Studies show that a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family or friends and often from the home medicine cabinet.

A prescription drug drop-off site will be set up outside the Bullhead City Police Department during the event. All medications collected will be turned over to the DEA for proper disposal. Liquid, needles or sharps will not be accepted.

For more disposal sites, log on to www.DEA.gov. For more information on prescription drug abuse, log on to www.DrugFreeAZ.org.

The BHCPD has a permanent prescription drop-off box in the lobby during regular business hours.
