The Jackson Police Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration are working together to offer a prescription drug takeback day.
Proper disposal of expired, unused or unwanted drugs helps prevent pill abuse and theft. You may bring pills from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sept. 26 to the Jackson Police and Fire Complex at 525 S. Hope St. Liquids and needles will not be accepted; only pills or patches. The service is free and anonymous, with no questions asked. The Jackson Fire Department also will participate in the event, offering child safety-seat checks at the same location. Trained seat installers will perform the checks at no cost, reviewing the seats for proper installation and functionality.
