The Monterey Police Department (MPD) is participating in the annual National Prescription Drug Take Back Day this Saturday, April 24 from 10 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. The public can drop off potentially dangerous prescription medications at Monterey Police Department, which will adhere to local COVID-19 guidelines and regulations in order to maintain the safety of all participants and local law enforcement. MPD will collect tablets, capsules, patches, and other solid forms of prescription drugs. Liquids (including intravenous solutions), syringes and other sharps, and illegal drugs will not be accepted.
