Prescription Drug Take Back Initiative

The Harker Heights Police Department is participating in the National Prescription Drug Take Back Day from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. April 26. This program provides a venue for people who want to dispose of unwanted and unused prescription drugs. The service is free and anonymous. National Prescription Drug Take Back Day addresses a vital public health issue. Medicines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse and abuse. Anyone wanting to dispose of unwanted prescription drugs can drop them off at the police department, 402 Indian Trail.
