River Valley Law Enforcement Hold Prescription Drug Take Back Day

BARLING, Ark. (KFSM) -- It's National Drug Take Back  Day and the Barling Police Department partnered with the Sebastian County Sheriff's Department Saturday (Oct. 27).

Police set up a safe drop zone at Barling City Hall.

It's a chance for those with unused or expired medication to leave it with police so it can be properly disposed.

Police said getting rid of medication you are no longer using can ensure it doesn't end up in the hands of someone who may abuse the medication.

Most police departments in the River Valley and Northwest Arkansas take part in National Drug Take Back Day.

The Barling Police Department said it received more than 200 pounds of unused medication from an event in April.
