Prescription drugs in American homes that are either no longer needed or outdated unfortunately have become the target of theft and misuse.
More and more adults recognize the need to remove these substances from the home and legally and safely turn them over to law enforcement for proper chain of custody and court ordered destruction.
Law enforcement is the only entity legally able to accept these medications and process them properly so that they do not fall into the wrong hands. Law enforcement takes control of and destroys drugs on a regular basis as part of their regular operations.
The State of Missouri has implemented a statewide permanent drop box program for its Drug Take Back Program, and the City of Arnold is pleased to be one of the cities participating.
Your old and unused prescription drugs can be dropped off at the Arnold Police Department offices, 2101 Jeffco Blvd., on Monday – Friday between the hours of 8:00 am – 4:45 pm.
Thanks for your help!
