Hamilton police are working with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency to host the spring Drug Take Back Day on Saturday, April 29.

The take back day will run 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Hamilton Public Safety Building at 265 Bay Road. In addition to Saturday’s take back day, there is always a medicine dropbox in the police station lobby.

The public service announcement featuring Stevens (who is the third officer from the left) has been running on WCVB-TV channel 5 this week to get out the word about this Saturday’s drug take back day.

Hamilton police are asking residents to clean out their home of unwanted medication and dispose of the drugs on the take back day.

Prescription drug abuse is a huge problem and this is an opportunity to help reduce the threat. Hamilton Police along with other public safety agencies want everyone to clean out their medicine cabinets and make their home safe from drug theft and abuse.
