128 lbs. of prescription drugs collected during Drug Take Back Day!
On Saturday, Oct. 27 the St. Louis Park Police Department held a Drug Take Back Day as part of the National Prescription Drug Take Back Day. The event provided a safe way for anyone with unused or expired prescription drugs to dispose of them. During the event, the police department collected roughly 128 pounds of prescription drugs!
