DEA Drug Take Back Event
The Police department is accepting prescription medications for disposal on one day only!  Saturday, September 26 between 10am and 2pm, you are welcome to bring your prescription and over-the-counter medications to the Bainbridge Island Police Department as part of the Drug Enforcement Agency’s nationwide "Drug Take-Back Initiative."  If you cannot visit the station during the event, please do not dispose of your medications in the trash or by flushing - simply hold onto your medication until the next event.  Thus far, the DEA has sponsored bi-annual events in the spring and fall, and BIPD will continue to participate as long as the events are scheduled.  Please do not bring sharps!  The event is specifically geared toward collecting unwanted medications only. Police Chief Matthew Hamner explains “It’s important to dispose of unwanted medication in the safest, most environmentally responsible way and the BIPD is happy to provide that venue for our citizens.” (Posted 8/21/15.)
