Ohio Prescription Drug Drop Box Program
The Delhi Township Police Department is pleased to announce its participation in the Ohio Prescription Drug Drop Box Program. This program was developed through a partnership between the Ohio Attorney General’s Office, the Ohio Department of Health, and the Drug Free Action Alliance. This program is designed to significantly reduce the prescription drugs in American homes that are either no longer needed or outdated. These same drugs unfortunately have become the target of theft and misuse, oftentimes by people who have access to the residence. America’s 12 to 17 year olds have made prescription drugs the number one substance of abuse for their age group, and much of that supply is coming from the medicine cabinets of their parents, grandparents, and friends. More and more adults recognize the need to remove these substances from the home. Law enforcement is the only entity legally able to accept these medications and process them properly so they do not fall into the wrong hands.
A drop box has been placed in the office lobby of the police department. Citizens can stop in during normal business hours to dispose of their medications. All pill-form medication can be accepted, but syringes and liquids cannot. If you have any questions reference the program, please contact our office at (513) 922-0060.
