ACSO: 2020 National Prescription Drug Take Back completed

By Sheriff Josh Brockman
Adair County Sheriff's Office

The Adair County Sheriff's Office has collected approximately 87 pounds of prescription medication over the last year in partnership with the Drug Enforcement Agency.

The purpose of the program is to provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposing of old prescription medicine, while educating the public about the potential for abuse of medication.

This year alongside Kentucky State Police Post 15 here in Columbia, we collected approximately 205 pounds total.

Last night, Sunday, October 25, 2020, at around 10pmCT, the Sheriff's Office turned over the prescription medications to Kentucky State Police Troopers at KSP Post 15, to be transported to a designated drop-off point for proper disposal.
