Officer Booker of the Shenandoah Police Department had the pleasure of teaching K-4th grade about Bicycle Safety at the Essex School today. The children were taught how to properly put on a helmet, safety rules of riding their bikes and the proper hand signals to use when riding their bikes. The Shenandoah Police Department would like to thank the Essex Community School for the invitation to teach the children.

With the up and coming Holiday Weekend the Shenandoah Police Department would like to announce that we will be out and Enforcing All Traffic Laws. The Shenandoah Police Department is taking part in a nationwide "Click It or Ticket" campaign that began Monday, May 21st, 2018 and runs through Sunday, June 3rd, 2018. The goal of the "Click It or Ticket" campaign is to increase awareness of Iowa's seatbelt and child restraint laws and to increase the percentage of drivers who comply with these laws. The Shenandoah Police Department wants to notify the public that wearing a seatbelt or placing your child into the proper child restraint greatly reduces death or serious bodily injury in the unfortunate event a motor vehicle collision occurs. #ClickItorTicket

Just a reminder about our prescription take back event today, Saturday, April 28th from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. We will be at the garage entrance on the west side of the SPD located at 400 West Sheridan Avenue. Bring old prescriptions so that they are properly disposed of. Please remember NO NEEDLES, SHARPS, or LIQUIDS!

[SHENANDOAH, IOWA] – On Saturday, April 28, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. the Shenandoah Police Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration will give the public its 15th opportunity in 7 years to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs. Bring your pills for disposal to the west side garage door entrance at the Shenandoah Police Department [400 West Sheridan Avenue]. (The DEA cannot accept liquids or needles or sharps, only pills or patches.) The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked. THE SHENANDOAH POLICE DEPARTMENT WILL NOT ACCEPT LIQUIDS OR NEEDLES OR SHARPS Last fall Americans turned in 456 tons (912,000 pounds) of prescription drugs at more than 5,300 sites operated by the DEA and almost 4,300 of its state and local law enforcement partners. Overall, in its 14 previous Take Back events, DEA and its partners have taken in more than 9 million pounds—more than 4,500 tons—of pills. This initiative addresses a vital public safety and public health issue. Medicines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse, and abuse. Rates of prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are alarmingly high, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s National Survey on Drug Use and Health shows year after year that the majority of misused and abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including someone else’s medication being stolen from the home medicine cabinet. In addition, Americans are now advised that their usual methods for disposing of unused medicines—flushing them down the toilet or throwing them in the trash—both pose potential safety and health hazards. For more information about the disposal of prescription drugs or about the April 28th Take Back Day event, contact Sergeant Macy Mather at (712) 246-3512.
