SEPTEMBER 26, 2015

10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.


BEXLEY, OHIO – On September 26 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. the Bexley Police Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will give the public its tenth opportunity in five years to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs.  Bring your pills for disposal to the police department at 559 N. Cassingham Road.  (The DEA cannot accept liquids or needles or sharps, only pills or patches.)  The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.

Last September, Americans turned in 309 tons (over 617,000 pounds) of prescription drugs at nearly 5,500 sites operated by the DEA and more than 4,000 of its state and local law enforcement partners.  When those results are combined with what was collected in its eight previous Take Back events, DEA and its partners have taken in over 4.8 million pounds—more than 2,400 tons—of pills. 

This initiative addresses a vital public safety and public health issue.  Medicines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse, and abuse. Rates of prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are alarmingly high, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs.  Studies show that a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including from the home medicine cabinet. In addition, Americans are now advised that their usual methods for disposing of unused medicines—flushing them down the toilet or throwing them in the trash—both pose potential safety and health hazards.

For more information about the disposal of prescription drugs or about the September 26 Take Back Day event, go to the DEA Office of  Diversion Control site or contact the police department at 614-559-4444.

Stopping Crime: Hardening the Target

Take Away the Opportunity

Warmer weather has arrived, causing an increase in thefts from garages as people leave doors open while working or relaxing at home. Help the Bexley Police Department reduce the warm weather thefts in your neighborhood.

Prevention is the best method to reduce this crime.  Thefts from open garages is a crime of opportunity; never leave an open garage unattended, even if your inside your home.  Closing and locking your garage door is an easy way to safeguard your property as unlocked doors are a target for thieves.  A person can be in and out of your garage in seconds, carrying away your valuables. Many times homeowners don't realize items are missing until days after a crime occurs.  

As a precaution, be sure to write down the make, model, color and serial number of the higher priced items in your garage. Take pictures of your property to help police recover stolen items.
