Over the last six months the Glacier County Sheriff’s Office, in partnership with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), collected from the public in order to give the citizens of Glacier County the opportunity to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous, expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs. The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.
Glacier County Sheriff’s Office turned over almost 40 pounds to Montana DEA for destruction. Montana DEA is still tallying all participating sites and Montana totals will be available by the end of the week.
In addition to DEA’s National Prescription Drug Take Back Day, there are many other ways to safely dispose of unwanted prescription drugs every day. For more information, contact Glacier County Sheriff’s Office administrative assistant Jody Hickey at 406-873-3652 or email firstname.lastname@example.org or www.glaciercounty-gov.com/sheriffsoffice.
