MPD to Launch Drug Drop Box Program Oct 9 PDF Print E-mail

Thursday, October 8, 2015Montclair Police Department Patch

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:

Girl Scouts
Montclair Police Athletic League
Montclair Police Department, Community Service Unit (CSU)

All are welcome to the launch of this new resource for the community.
