The Sarasota Police Department will partner with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration for National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, April 27.

The event will allow residents to prevent pill abuse and theft by removing from their homes and properly disposing of potentially dangerous expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs. Although the drop box in the lobby of SPD headquarters is available year-round, residents are encouraged to bring unwanted drugs to the HQ at 2099 Adams Lane or the Glasser/Schoenbaum Human Services Center at 1750 17th St. 

Officers will collect only tablets, capsules, patches and other solid forms of prescription drugs. The DEA National Take-Back Day is free and anonymous, with no questions asked.
