Entry Description

Jasper - On Saturday, September 29, 2012 the Indiana State Police participated in the Fifth nationwide “Prescription Drug Take Back” initiative sponsored by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA.) The “Take Back” initiative seeks to prevent prescription drug abuse and theft. 

Collection sites were set up nationwide for expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs to be turned in for destruction.  This program is intended for liquid and pill medications.

The Indiana State Police set up collections sites at every post (except the Toll Road.)  Here at the Jasper Post with the help of Tri-Cap RSVP, the Dubois County Sheriff’s Office, and the Birdseye and Huntingburg Fire Departments, 507 pounds of medications were collected locally between the hours of 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Saturday. 

Statewide the Indiana State Police collected a total of 2,319.5 pounds of unused or expired medication. During the previous Drug Take Back held on April 28, 2012, 1,512.5 pounds of medications were collected at State Police Posts. 

Below is a list of each post’s results for 9/29/2012.
