PRESCRIPTION SAFETY INITIATIVE
Locking medicine storage boxes can protect others from accessing potentially harmful prescription and OTC medications. If you are interested in receiving a free lockbox or learning more about medication lockboxes, please contact Karen Ravenelle-Bloom at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Willimantic Police Department is not presently accepting unused/expired medications. Read more of their recommendations for disposing of medications. Be on the lookout for the National Medication Take Back Day event.
To me, as a parent, PRIDE means safety, courage, and support. The youth have the courage to be themselves, use their voice and provide safe environments for the younger generations. The amazing role models they look up to, including members of the police department, help guide and show them what it means to be positive members of their communities.
