KPD Participates in the Prescription Drug Take-Back Program

The Killeen Police Department is participating in the DEA Drug Take-Back Initiative that allows for collection of medications that are no longer needed or wanted. This is a great opportunity for those who missed the previous events, or who have subsequently accumulated unwanted, unused prescription drugs, to safely dispose of those medications.

Starting on Monday, September 22nd and continuing through the weekend until Monday morning, September 29, 2014, citizens will be able to leave unwanted drugs with the Desk Officer on duty in the lobby of the Killeen Police Department Headquarters located at 3304 Community Blvd or the Desk Officer on duty at the North Precinct located at 402 N. 2nd St. The DEA will later collect these items for proper disposal.

The National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day aims to provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposal. It is important for our citizens to remember that you should not flush unwanted prescription drugs down the toilet, put them in the trash or leave the unwanted medications where others might reach them.

We encourage everyone to take advantage of this opportunity to safely dispose of unwanted, unused prescription drugs.
