Residents can drive through and drop off their outdated or unneeded medication. This event will be held regardless of the weather. Residents can remain in their vehicle and drop off the medication.

Clinton Police Department Bicycle Registration Event Event Date: Saturday, June 3rd, 2017 10:00am - 12:00 Each year the Clinton Police Department receives hundreds of reports of stolen, lost and found bikes. In most cases we are unable to identify the owners of the recovered bikes. The Clinton Police Department has had a bicycle registration program since the early 80’s. The purpose of this program is to increase the number of bicycles returned to their rightful owners. Registration of your bicycle only takes a couple of minutes and requires some basic information about you and your bike. The Clinton Police Department will be holding a bicycle registration event in the back parking lot at the Clinton Police Department, 113 6th Ave S, on Saturday, June 3 from 1000-1200. Bicycle registration stickers will be issued and bicycle safety will be discussed. As a bonus; everyone who registers a bicycle will be entered into a drawing to win a brand new bicycle. The winner need not be present to win. The winner will be notified at the address listed on the bicycle registration. There will also be a couple of small obstacle courses set up for children to test their bicycle riding skills. A special thanks goes out to everyone who has helped make this event happen: • Wal-Mart • Ben’s Bicycle Shop • The Bicycle Station & Jensen Oil • Citizens Police Academy Alumni Assoc. • Everyone who has donated to Pay-it-Forward Anyone who is unable to attend this event is still able to register their bicycle at the lobby of the Police Department during regular lobby hours.

We wish everyone a happy and safe Memorial Day!
