National Take Back Day!

April 7, 2014

TPSO News Release
For Immediate Release from Sheriff Daniel Edwards

HAMMOND – Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff Daniel Edwards announces that the Sheriff’s Office will be participating in the 8th Annual National Take-Back Initiative in partnership with the Drug Enforcement Administration.

Collection activity is planned for April 26, 2014, from 10 – 2 p.m., in the Target parking lot at the Hammond Square Mall.

The National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day aims to provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposing of prescription drugs, while also educating the general public about the potential for abuse of these medications.

It's a great time to clean out your medicine cabinet!

Protect our kids, families and environment by properly disposing of your unwanted and expired medicines. Medicines in the home are a leading cause of accidental poisoning and flushed or trashed medicines can end up polluting our waters. Rates of prescription drug abuse are alarmingly high - over half of teens abusing medicines get them from a family member or friend, including the home medicine cabinet, and often without their knowledge.

Sheriff Edwards urges you to take part in this opportunity to surrender pharmaceutical controlled substances and other medications to law enforcement officers for destruction. Expired, unused, or unwanted controlled substances in our homes are a potential source of supply for the increasing abuse of pharmaceutical drugs in the United States and an unacceptable risk to public health and safety.

This program is specifically designed to help the citizens of our community dispose of their unused or out dated prescription drugs in a legal manner. The prescriptions can be dropped off in the original containers and no questions asked. I would encourage the citizens of this community to take advantage of this program and help us in the disposal of these drugs, and help keep them off the streets and out the wrong hands. Additionally, improper disposal of prescription medicines can harm the environment and may be a risk to your family.
