06 May CCSD Police Department holds event for disposal of medications

In conjunction with the Care Coalition, the Clark County School District (CCSD) Police Department will sponsor a “Pill Take Back Day” event on Saturday, May 7, from 8 a.m. – noon. This community event will take place at Arbor View High School, located at 7500 Whispering Sands Drive in Las Vegas. Document shredding will also take place, but the primary focus is to collect expired or unused prescriptions so they can be disposed of in a safe manner and kept out of the hands of children. So far this school year, CCSD police officers have collected more than 4,500 pounds of medications through the “pill take back” events.
