Over 125 Pounds of Prescription Drugs Collected

Place at Drug Tackback

PRESS RELEASE TEHACHAPI POLICE DEPARTMENT 

CHIEF KENT KROEGER 

(661) 822-2222 

April 29, 2019 

On Saturday April 27th, the Tehachapi Police Department participated in the national Prescription Drug Take Back Day in partnership with the Drug Enforcement Administration (D.E.A.). Tehachapi residents were encouraged to bring in their unwanted, unused, and expired medications for disposal. 

The Tehachapi Police Department received a total of 125.2 pounds of unwanted medications from the community. Those medications were sealed and turned over to the D.E.A. for disposal. 

“Allowing our community to turn in these unneeded medications helps keep them from being stolen and misused. It also prevents them from being flushed into our sewer system which eventually is reintroduced to our water table, said Tehachapi Police Chief Kent Kroeger. 

The next scheduled Prescription Drug Take Back Day will be in October of 2019.
