The Montclair Police Department Community Service Unit will launch its Drug Drop Box initiative on Friday, October 9 at 4:00 p.m. at Police Department Headquarters, 647 Bloomfield Avenue. The program allows residents to properly dispose of any old or unused prescription and over-the-counter medications by dropping them off at the box which is mounted in the lobby of Police Headquarters. The drop box program was organized in conjunction with the Essex County Alcohol and Drug Abuse Prevention Team (ADAPT).
Research shows that 70% of individuals who abuse prescription and/or over-the-counter medication get access to them from the medicine cabinet or household of a friend or family member. Raising awareness about prescription and over-the-counter medication abuse and building a safe and healthy community are the key goals of this joint project.
The Police Community Service Unit partnered with several local organizations to decorate the Drug Drop Box. Local youth from the following organizations helped with decoration efforts:
Montclair Police Athletic League
Montclair Police Department, Community Service Unit (CSU)
All are welcome to the launch of this new resource for the community.

Officers Jacqueline Allen and F. “Rikki” Cook of the Montclair Police Department Community Service Unit (CSU) attended a North Mountain Avenue block party last Sunday, where they provided valuable safety information to attendees. Local resident Selma Avdicevic hosted the party which was attended by many children ranging from 3 to 16 years of age, as well as adults.
Officers Allen and Cook covered topics such as bicycle safety, fraud protection, distracted driving, dealing with bullying, and how to make your home safe. The children also had an opportunity to see the inside of a patrol car and interacted one-on-one with the officers, thereby furthering positive police-youth relations.
