I told you earlier in the week about Caddo Sheriff’s Safety Town being a drop-off point for your unused or unwanted prescription meds, now Shreveport Police Chief Willie Shaw has announced that his department will join together with other local law enforcement agencies to participate in the national “Take-Back” initiative for prescription medications to be held this weekend.

Local law enforcement agencies across the country will be working in cooperation with the Drug Enforcement Administration to set up collection sites for old, unwanted, and expired pharmaceutical controlled substances and other medications. Anyone with such medication is urged to dispose of it through this free, safe and anonymous program.

Shreveport police officers will be on hand to collect medications at Shreveport Fire Stations #4 located at 2200 Milam Street, #8 located at 3406 Velva Street, and #9 located at 7009 St. Vincent Avenue. Shreveport officers will also be assisting Caddo Parish Sheriff’s deputies at the Sheriff’s Safety Town, located at 8910 Jewella Avenue in the west end of the Summer Grove parking lot. All of the locations will be open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Saturday, April 30, 2011.

Authorities will accept prescription and over-the-counter medications, such as tablets, capsules, and sealed liquids. All identifying information such as name, address, and prescription number should be removed. Intra-venous solutions, injectables, and needles will not be accepted.
