NATIONAL PRESCRIPTION DRUG TAKE-BACK INITIATIVE
This past Saturday, April 29, the Cocoa Beach Police Department, in conjunction with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, participated in the National Prescription Drug Take-Back Initiative. The program aims to provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposing prescription drugs, while also educating the general public about the potential for abuse. Thanks to the efforts of Sergeant Manny Hernandez and our volunteers, the event was a success! We had a great time with those we serve, and gathered approximately 53 pounds of prescription drugs for disposal.
