• Pacific Grove Police deem DEA drug take-back a success

    Pacific Grove Police Department hosted a collection point for the Drug Enforcement Agency’s sixth National Take Back Initiative.
    Eighty-three pounds of prescription medications were collected at the Pacific Grove Police Department and will be disposed of appropriately and safely by the DEA.
    The goal of this program is to allow citizens to deliver all of their unused, unwanted, or expired medications to law enforcement officials who can in turn dispose of controlled substances in a safe, secure, and non-hazardous manner. This will potentially save lives and protect the ecosystem.
    Pacific Grove Police Department will partner with the DEA in future National Take Back Initiative events and will make the public aware of these opportunities, which occur approximately twice per year. Until the next event, the public is encouraged to contact their local pharmacy to determine the proper and safe way to dispose of their unused pharmaceuticals.
