POLICE DEPARTMENT


      March 7, 2012                                                                      NEWS RELEASE      The Police Departments in Bay Village, Fairview Park, Lakewood, North Olmsted, Rocky River, and Westlake in cooperation with the Westshore Enforcement Bureau (WEB), are proud to announce that they have installed prescription drug drop boxes at their agencies.  Jeff Capretto of WEB had worked with The National Association of Drug Diversion Investigators (NADDI) in obtaining a grant to purchase the boxes for the Westshore Police Departments.  Through the efforts of WEB, NADDI and the various cities, our residents will be able to dispose of their prescription drug medications in a safe and secure manner.      The police departments cannot accept needles or liquids, but all other forms of prescription medications can be accepted.  The departments ask that labels on the bottles be removed or names of persons on the labels be marked out.  If you have any questions, please contact your local police agency.  For a listing of all agencies with a prescription drop box, go to: www.rxdrugdropbox.org
