La Crosse's heroin task force wants to get more prescription drugs off the streets.

They're considering a plan to add permanent drug drop off boxes at different locations around the city. The first would be the La Crosse police station.

Right now, the county has prescription drug drop off days throughout the year.

They're so successful, the task force wants to make the boxes permanent to help get chemicals that can be abused by people off of the streets. "And that has a laundry list of benefits that go along with it, from crime, people breaking into a house to try to get these drugs, from accidental uses by family, friends," said Keith Lease from the local Heroin Task Force.

The task force is working through funding and logistics issues before any boxes can be installed.
