DEA Takeback Event Saturday, April 27

The Brown County Sheriff’s Office is pleased to announce that they will be participating in the National Drug Takeback event on Saturday, April 27, at the Brown County Sheriff’s Office from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

This is a national event that we have been a part of for many years. Hundreds of pounds of unwanted, unused or expired medications have been collected at the Sheriff’s office and then turned over to the DEA for disposal. We also collect medications year round, 24 hours a day.

This is a very worthwhile event that provides citizens an effective way to dispose of medication they no longer need or use. Injectable and needles are not accepted. Please contact us if you have any questions.

We have been participating in the Take Back event since its inception. We have modified this project so we take any unwanted, unused or expired medications any time during the day or night throughout the year. People can leave their medications with dispatch 24/7 and it is deposited in a secure container that is monitored by our security cameras. When the container is filled, we place the medications in our secure evidence room until the DEA picks up the meds. This is a great program that the community appreciates greatly.
