All of us have prescription medicines we take or have at one time but may have not taken them all, and now they are just lying around the house. That is not very safe if you have small children or if you're like me and have small grandchildren in the house.

Well, the Lake Charles Police department (LCPD) will be holding a prescription drug take back day this Saturday, October 22, 2016 at the police station in Lake Charles on Enterprise Blvd.

Lieutenant Richard Harrell with the Lake Charles Police Department gave us all the details on the program:

Lake Charles City Police Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will give the public its 12th opportunity in seven years to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous, expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs.


Bring your pills for disposal to the Lake Charles City Police Department at 830 Enterprise Blvd. (rear parking lot).  The DEA cannot accept liquid or needles or sharps, only pills or patches. )  The service is free and anonymous.

So sweep your house and look for those prescriptions that you don't take or need anymore, then go drop them off this Saturday.
