TOYS FOR TOTS 2018: The Morgan City Police Department and its officers are again helping our community partner, the Marine Corp. League St. Mary Detachment in their annual "Toys for Tots" efforts during this holiday season. Our officers have the opportunity to participate in "No Shave November" by contributing toys themselves to kick off the efforts. In addition, to help spread the word and help the Marine Corp. League, officers will have the option to issue "warnings" during their regular traffic enforcement duties. Motorists may receive a written warning which announces the "Toys for Tots" Campaign and explains ways to donate their toys. This program is strictly voluntary on the motorist part. If you encounter a scruffy looking officer, know that they themselves have donated and help us support this worthy cause to our area families in need. Please support "Toys for Tots" and Stay Safe!

It’s that time of year again! Don’t forget to set your clock back an hour. Stay safe!

NATIONAL DRUG TAKE BACK XVI FALL 2018: The Morgan City Police Department has supported the National Drug Take Back for the past several years and in 2016, with the support of our community partner, Urgent Care of Morgan City, we deployed a disposal drop box to help our citizens dispose of unwanted dangerous drugs from their homes. This box, which is stationed in the front lobby of the Morgan City Police Department provides a year round location to dispose of expired, unused or unwanted dangerous drugs which can endanger our families and provide a path to addiction. During the XV National Drug Take Back in April 2018, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency and it's community partners which includes the Morgan City Police Department provided over 5,482 collection sites nationwide. This past effort yielded over 475 TONS of medications. On Saturday, October 27, 2018, Morgan City Police Department Detectives and our community partners, Walgreen's Pharmacy and Wal-Mart Neighborhood Market joined to conduct collection sites. Our efforts collected over 84 pounds of dangerous drugs. A great effort during a short period of time. We could like to remind you, if you have unused, unwanted or expired dangerous drugs in your home, you may dispose of those items at the Morgan City Police Department, weekdays between 5 am-4 pm or contact the Morgan City Police Department @ (985)380-4605 for more information.
