Local agencies participate in DEA’s national prescription drug take-back day

SULLIVAN COUNTY, TN (WJHL)- Law enforcement agencies across the country participated in National Drug Take-Back day on Saturday, including several agencies in our region.


Saturday morning we were at the Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office where students from ETSU’s Bill Gatton College of Pharmacy were on hand to help dispose of any unwanted prescription medication.

The goal of the event is to prevent pill abuse and theft.

If you didn’t have a chance to drop off the medication on Saturday, a drop-off box should be available inside most law enforcement offices.
