NEVADA POLICE TAKING BACK UNWANTED PRESCRIPTION DRUGS APRIL 28TH. Nevada, Missouri – On Saturday, April 28, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. the Nevada 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 Nevada Police Department at 120 S Ash St. Nevada, Mo. (The DEA cannot accept liquids or needles or sharps, only pills or patches.) The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked. 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 28 Take Back Day event, contact the Nevada Police Department at 417-448-5100.

Nevada Police were honored to show our support for the Crime Victim Rights Walk & Ceremony held Monday evening.

This week Nevada Police conducted use of force and de-escalation training with the MILO simulator. This simulator gives law enforcement real life scenarios where officers have to utilize their judgement skills. Some of the scenarios covered were active shooters, domestic violence situations, and traffic stops. Nevada Police opened up the simulator training to our cadets, city council members, and members of the local media. We are proud to be able to give our officers this type of training, and have these resources available to us. Thanks to all who participated!
