JPD Gets Medication Drop Off Box

JASPER -- The police department now has a prescription medication drop off box.

You can now drop of expired or unused medications using the box at the Jasper Police Department.

It’s a joint effort by CVS Health and the Partnership for Drug-Free Kids.

The Medication Disposal for Safer Communities program has donated 800 such collection boxes across the country, collecting more than 100 metric tons of unwanted medication.

The new drop box is available 24-hous a day, 7 days a week, in the lobby of the Jasper Police Department.
