Police to host drug prescription drop-off April 29

SNELLVILLE - The Snellville Police Department will be participating in the National Drug Take Back event from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. April 29 at the Snellville Police Department, 2315 Wisteria Drive.

 The event is designed to allow residents a safe way to dispose of prescription drugs that would be dangerous in the hands of children and potentially abused by others.

Officers will set up a drive-thru style drop off so residents can drive up to the designated drop off area to participate in the event. No needles or syringes can be accepted.

During these Drug Enforcement Administration sponsored drug take back events Snellville police collect hundreds of pounds of unwanted medication.

For more information about the event contact Lt. A.L. Sullivan at 770-985-3555 or
