The Fremont Police Department has a new tool to help prevent the abuse of prescription drugs. The Rx Drug Drop Box is located in the lobby of the police department located at 725 N. Park Ave., where prescription pills can be discarded. The drop box is available from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Officers also will take pills at other times.
The box was obtained through a grant from the National Association of Drug Diversion Investigators (NADDI).
Only pills can be discarded in the drop box. Liquids, needles, thermometers and medical waste will not be accepted in the drop box.
This is offered in such a way that any participant will remain anonymous. No identifying information is maintained.
