On Saturday, Oct. 26 the St. Louis Park Police Department collected unused and expired prescription drugs and e‐cigarette and vaping devices as part of the National Prescription Drug Take Back Day. The event provided a safe, convenient and responsible way to dispose of prescription drugs. During the event, the police department collected roughly 178 pounds of prescription drugs, 50 pounds more than last year’s October event!

Thank you to the St. Louis Park Police Department and everyone who participated for making this another successful event.
