The Mille Lacs Tribal Police Department would like to wish a safe and Happy Halloween to everyone. We will be handing out goodies at the office in District 1 from 2PM until 6PM. Stop by and say HI!

With Halloween coming up, the Mille Lacs Band Tribal Police wanted to release some safety tips for trick or treaters. 1. Walk on the sidewalks and not in the street unless there is no sidewalk available. If you are walking on the street, make sure you are facing traffic. 2. Look both ways before crossing roadways. 3. Plan the trick or treat route and make sure adults know where children are going. 4. Have a parent or responsible adult accompany small children as they make their way around the neighborhoods. If older children are going out alone, agree on a specific time when they should return home. 5. Make sure trick-or-treaters can be seen. Put reflective tape on their costume, bags, or give them a flashlight to carry. 6. Only visit a home if the porchlight is on. 7. Accept treats at the door, do not go inside. 8. Make sure children know their home phone number and what to do in case of an emergency or they become lost. 9. Use flame-resistant costumes. 10. Use face paint instead of masks so that their eyes aren’t covered. 11. Be careful around animals you are not familiar with. 12. Make sure all candy is checked before consumption. Throw away loose candy and open packages. If you are welcoming trick or treaters to your house, clean off your sidewalks and steps so they don’t trip over anything. Make sure the area is well lit so the trick or treaters know where they are going. As always, notify Law Enforcement immediately if you see any suspicious or unlawful activities.

April 29, 2017 is National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day. The purpose of this event is to provide a "safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposing prescription drugs, while also educating the general public about the potential for abuse of medications." There are a number of reasons why it is important to discard your prescription medications such as prevention of misuse/abuse of medications, flushing of medications down the toilet has a profound effect on the environment by polluting drinking water, and disposing of unwanted/unused medications in the trash isn't a good idea either. It's time to clean out those medicine cabinets, junk drawers, and other places where your unused, expired, or unwanted medications sit in your home. There is a drop off site located in the entry way to Tribal Police. If you are not located in District 1, you can go to this website to find a location near you: https://www.deadiversion.usdoj.gov/drug_disposal/takeback/index.html
