Sheriff Danny Hickman reports that Operation Pill Bottle for Boone County went very well on Saturday, September 29. Boone County participated in the National Take Back Day event with the drop off point for unused or unwanted medications and over the counter drugs being the Sheriff’s Office.
Operation Pill Bottle netted about 100 pounds of those medications and over the counter drugs. These drugs are disposed of at a location determined by the Arkansas State Police.
Sheriff Hickman wants to remind everyone that our RX drop box is located in the lobby of the Sheriff’s Office and is a permanent drop off location for any unused or unwanted prescription drugs and over the counter medications. The Sheriff’s Office lobby is open 24 hours a day.
We are very excited to be able to offer this service to Boone County citizens and are pleased with the drugs that were turned in on National Take Back Day.
