Drug Take Back Day aims to keep community safe with help from police

CAMPBELL, Wis. (WKBT) – Officers across Wisconsin are asking for your help to help keep our area safe from drug abuse.

Today is drug takeback day.

Officers take prescription and over-the-counter medications as well as vapes in drop boxes around the area to be safely disposed of.

Officers say that drug takeback day is a good way to boost the use of the drop boxes… And keep the community safe in more ways than one.

“Helps keep kids safe and everybody safe, so then its safely destroyed in a safe environment so its not getting out there in other places.” said Reserve Officer Brandon Bellacero.

If you missed out on today’s event, you can also bring medications to safe drop-off boxes year-round.

There are boxes available during business hours at most area police departments and pharmacies listed below.
