LAFAYETTE POLICE DEPARTMENT DRUG TAKE BACK & DOCUMENT SHRED EVENT
The Lafayette Police Department participates in the national drug take back events each year, which focuses on removing potentially dangerous controlled substances from our medicine cabinets. A national take back day provides the public an opportunity to surrender expired, unwanted or unused pharmaceutical controlled substances & other medication to law enforcement officers for destruction. Items which cannot be accepted for take back programs are needles, thermometers, oxygen containers, used inhalers,aerosol cans, liquids containing hydrogen peroxide, chemotherapy, or radio active substances and illicit drugs.
The shred event provides the public an opportunity to safely get rid of documents and possibly avoid identity theft. Please limit to no more than 3bags or boxes. Items which cannot be accepted are newspapers, phone books, magazines, or catalogues.
