Rehoboth Beach Police Department will participate in National Drug Take-Back Day

March 15th, 2019

On Saturday, April 27, 2019, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., the Rehoboth Beach Police Department will once again partner with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) for a National Drug Take-Bake Initiative. This is an opportunity to give the public a chance to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused and unwanted prescriptions. This initiative addresses a vital public safety and health issue. Studies show that most abused prescription drugs are obtained from the home medicine cabinet. Please bring pills for disposal to the front lobby of the Police Department, 229 Rehoboth Avenue. The collection is free and open to the public; no appointments are necessary. Participants may dispose of medication in its original container, crossing out personal information, or by removing the medication from its container and disposing of it directly into the disposal box. This program is anonymous, and no questions or requests for identification will be made. For more information, please contact the Rehoboth Beach Police Department at 302-227-2577.
