Recently, the DEA had its 14th Prescription Drug Take Back Day. This program was initiated in 2009 to help reduce the nationwide opioid crisis by providing safe and secure disposal points for prescription medications. Nationally, the DEA and more than 4,200 local and tribal law enforcement partners collected a 912,305 pounds - 456 tons - of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs for disposal at more than 5,300 collection sites. This brings the total amount of prescription drugs collected since the fall of 2010 to 9,015,668 pounds, or 4,508 tons. According to Acting Administrator Robert W. Patterson, "most people start down the path of addiction through the misuse of opioid prescription drugs than any other substance. The abuse of these prescription drugs has fueled the nation's opioid epidemic, which has led to the highest rate of overdose deaths this country has ever seen." Outdated, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs can be dropped off at the Bartonville Police Department. There is a drop box for these items located in the lobby and is available at all times. Complete results for the DEA's fall Take Back Day are available at www.deatakeback.com. The DEA's next Prescription Drug Take Back Day is April 28, 2018.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of those involved in horrific incident that occurred at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas yesterday.

Chief Brian Fengel would like to commend Officer John Mobeck and Officer Matthew Schumm for their heroic efforts in rescuing the driver from a fully engulfed vehicle fire. Their swift action, exceptional courage, extraordinary decisiveness, presence of mind and disregard of their personal safety allowed them to pull the driver from the flames to save his life. The call came in as a vehicle involved in a severe crash and was on fire. Upon officers’ arrival they found the driver entrapped and on fire inside the burning vehicle. Officers without hesitation used a fire extinguisher to combat the flames which enabled them to rescue the driver. This crash is still under investigation and the driver was transported to OSF and then to Springfield Memorial burn unit where he is listed in stable condition.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you Rockford Illinois Police Department, and the family and friends of fallen Officer Jaimie Cox. 🖤💙🖤

Bartonville Police Department, Bartonville Lions Club and Bartonville McDonalds teamed up earlier this summer for a positive ticket campaign. Officers issued positive tickets to children throughout the village caught doing positive things. The ticket was good for a free burger and bag of fries from a Bartonville McDonalds. Along with that the ticket was then filled out and dropped in a box for a drawing which was held recently for two free bikes. The picture below shows are lucky winners. http://www.pjstar.com/photogallery/IP/20171009/NEWS/100909997/PH/1http://www.centralillinoisproud.com/news/local-news/bartonville-police-pushing-for-a-positive-difference/831579132

SCAM INFO: It has been brought to our attention that residents are receiving calls from what appears to be local phone numbers and businesses in the area. Residents are answering the phone because it is recognizable number on their caller ID and it turns out to be a recording saying you have won a trip, a person claiming to be from the IRS, or even someone pretending to be your grandchild. The scammers are using programs that can disguise their number as a local number all while still calling from a call center located who knows where, might not even be in the USA. Please pass this information along to others that might not have Facebook. Remember never give out your personal information over the phone and if it sounds to good to be true it probably is a scam of some sort.
