The Louisiana State Police (in conjunction with the Drug Enforcement Administration) will participate in the National Prescription Drug Take Back Day on Saturday in an effort to help local residents rid their homes of potentially dangerous prescription drugs.
Expired, unused and unwanted medications may be brought for disposal from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday to the nearest Louisiana State Police troop location. This service is free and anonymous and is an opportunity for those who have accumulated unwanted or unused prescription drugs to dispose of them safely.
The state of law enforcement in the United States may be in a very disturbing state, but luckily law enforcement officers in Ruston and Lincoln Parish are doing their part.
Deputy Chief Clint WIlliams, with the Ruston Police Department, said this area has been fortunate.
“We always try our best to go out and establish good relationships with the community,” Williams said. “We stress that importance to our guys all the time. It is part of their job to go out and establish those relationships.”
