Police across Ontario, Canada Working to Combat Prescription Drug Abuse
(St. Thomas) – Saturday, May 10, 2014, is your opportunity to quickly and easily dispose of old and unused prescription medications that you may have in your home. The St. Thomas Police Service will have a location available for residents to drop off medications that they no longer need.
The misuse and abuse of prescription medication has become a public safety issue for communities and police services across the country, who are working together to draw attention to this public safety concern by participating in the Prescription Drug Drop Off Day on Saturday, May 10, 2014. The St. Thomas Police Service will accept unwanted or expired medications to keep them away from individuals for whom they were never intended. The abuse of prescription medications can lead to incidents of overdose and, in some cases, death.
Between 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, May 10, residents can simply go to 145 Curtis Street (between the Police Station and the Library) and anonymously drop off unwanted drugs. Police and medical officials urge you to do your part to combat this serious public health threat.
Prescription Drug Drop Off Day is a one-day initiative supported by the Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police (OACP), Partnership for a Drug Free Canada, and Public Safety Canada. Residents are further reminded that they can return any unwanted or outdated prescription medications to their local pharmacy for safe and secure disposal at any time.
