Counterfeit $100

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.

RCPD Drug Take Back Initiative April 29 10am-2pm

RICHLAND CENTER POLICE DEPARTMENT

Press Release
April 25, 2017              

Richland Center Police Chief Lucas Clements announces that on April 29th from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., the Richland Center Police Department, in conjunction with the Wisconsin Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will be hosting a Prescription Drug Take Bake Initiative.

This initiative addresses a vital public safety and public health issue. The focus of the event is on removing potentially dangerous pharmaceutical substances from our community’s medicine cabinets and preventing them from going into our water supply, as well as to help provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposal.

Chief Clements states that the Take Back Initiative is a great educational tool that brings awareness to the general public of the potential for abuse of unused or expired medication that is not disposed of. Medicines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse, and abuse. Rates of prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are alarmingly high, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs. Studies show that a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including from the home medicine cabinet. In addition, Americans are now advised that their usual methods for disposing of unused medicines, flushing them down the toilet or throwing them in the trash, both pose potential safety and health hazards.

Your pills can be dropped off for disposal at the Richland Center Police Department located at 470 S. Main St., Richland Center. (Liquids, needles or sharps cannot be accepted, only pills or patches.)  This service is free and anonymous, with no questions asked.

Chief Clements added that over the past six years, local efforts with this free service have generated approximately 500 pounds of prescription drugs collected for disposal from our community and encourages citizens to keep taking advantage of the service.

One of th 50 Safest Cities in Wisconsin

The Safe Wise Report, an Authority on safety and home security news, has named Richland Center as #32 of The 50 Safest Cities in Wisconsin.

The SafeWise Report Announces the 50 Safest Cities in Wisconsin

The SafeWise Report released its “50 Safest Cities in Wisconsin” report this week. To compile this report, SafeWise used the most recent FBI crime data from 2012 to analyze and rank these cities, which all have a minimum population of 5,000 people.

We look at crimes from part 1 of the FBI Unified Crime Report (UCR) reported crime data, which focuses on violent crimes (aggravated assault, forcible rape, murder, and robbery) as well as property crimes (arson, burglary, larceny-theft, and motor vehicle theft). From there, we calculate the chances of these crimes happening out of a thousand in order to level the playing field for cities of varying populations. From all the cities in Wisconsin, we narrowed the list down to 50 and assigned rankings according to data provided by the FBI’s UCR report.

“In Wisconsin, direct involvement from both the police departments and citizens helps foster safe and positive environments,” SafeWise security analyst Carolyn Heneghan said. “All 50 cities on our list made an impressive effort to maintain a sense of security for residents, while ensuing an excellent quality of life.”
