NEWS RELEASE CONCORDIA POLICE DEPARTMENT TAKING BACK UNWANTED PRESCRIPTION DRUGS OCTOBER 28 AT CONCORDIA CITY HALL CONCORDIA, KS. – On Saturday, October 28, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. the Concordia Police Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will give the public its 14th 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 Concordia City Hall at 701 Washington Street (enter through glass doors on the West side). The DEA cannot accept liquids or needles or sharps, only pills or patches. The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked. Last April, Kansans turned in 8 tons (over 16,000 pounds) of prescription drugs at almost 70 sites operated by the DEA and its state and local law enforcement partners within the state. Overall, in its 13 previous Take Back events, DEA and its partners have taken in over 7.1 million pounds—more than 3,500 tons—of pills nationwide. 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. Studies show that a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including 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 October 28 Take Back Day event, go to the DEA Diversion website or contact Lt. Ric Fredrickson at the Concordia Police Department (785) 243-3131

Counterfeit US currency with pink Chinese characters on them were found at a business and a bank deposit here in Concordia. The bills are not valid currency and are typically used to train bank tellers in China. They have been for sale on the internet. Knowingly using this fake currency as real money is a felony. Do not accept any bills with Chinese characters on them. This is a nationwide problem here and also has occurred in Australia. If you have already accepted these bills contact the Concordia Police Department at 785-243-3131.
