Drug Take Back – October 28, 2017 – 10am-2pm

RICHLAND CENTER POLICE DEPARTMENT

Press Release
October 20, 2017

 It’s not shocking anymore to hear about prescription painkillers and heroin abuse in Wisconsin communities. Everyone – law enforcement, elected officials, school officials, and the media – is talking about the epidemic that is stealing futures and lives.

On October 28th, you can do something to help prevent this epidemic from spreading further. The Richland Center Police Department in conjunction with Richland County Children and Family Advocacy Council will be hosting a Drug Take Back Day – a national initiative to get all those unused prescription and over-the-counter drugs out of your medicine cabinet and safely destroyed.

Chief Lucas Clements states that this effort will continue to bring an increased focus on the issue of prescription opiate abuse. The goal of the Take-Back Day is to provide a free, safe, convenient and responsible means of disposal, while also educating the community about the potential for abuse and consequences of improper storage and disposal of these medications. According to Chief Clements, local take back efforts from April 2017 collected and disposed of 146 pounds of unused prescription medication.

Proper drug disposal is one way to substantially reduce the abuse of prescription narcotic painkillers. Chief Lucas Clements states, “Storing potentially dangerous drugs in a secure location and disposing of them promptly after use will reduce the availability to people improperly using these substances.”

Drug overdoses kill more people than car accidents in Wisconsin, and the largest numbers of those deaths aren’t caused by “hard street drugs.” Chief Clements reports that the Police Department investigated 5 overdose deaths within the City of Richland Center in 2016, with victims’ ages ranging from 26 to 55 years old. With more than 163,000 Wisconsinites addicted to prescription opioids, we all have a role in preventing that number from increasing.

On Saturday, October 28, go to the Richland Center Police Department between 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. to stop this epidemic from taking an even bigger hold on our community.

Trick or Treating in Richland Center

Trick or Treating will be held in the City of Richland Center from 5:00 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. on October 31st, 2017.  Remind the children to go to the properties with the outdoor light on.  Motorists, please use caution when driving where the children are.
