#SAFETYTIPTUESDAY – The Meridian Police Department proudly partners with local pharmacies and government agencies to provide the Take Back Meds Program. Disposing of medicine in our Public Safety Building lobby will ensure that your medicine will not be stolen from the garbage, will not enter our environment and deters abuse and overdoses at home. How to handle your unwanted medications properly: 1. Do NOT throw them in the trash. 2. Do NOT pour them down the drain. 3. Do NOT flush them down the toilet. Instead, take non-controlled medications (over-the-counter medications and medications to treat medical conditions like high blood pressure and diabetes) to a participating pharmacy. For controlled medications such as, pain relievers, anti-depressants, sleep aids and cough medicine, feel free to bring them to our police department lobby and dispose of them in the black box right before the second door. When disposing of medication, bring them in original containers and black out all identifying personal information but NOT the name of the medication.

Meridian Police Department's Activity Report for September.

#SafetyTipTuesday There are new recommendations regarding car seats for children. The American Academy of Pediatrics says children should remain rear-facing in their car seat for as long as possible, even past their 2nd birthday. Parents should wait until children reach the highest weight or height allowed by their car seat before placing it in a forward-facing position. Studies show rear-facing is the safest way to ride because the head, neck and spine are supported by the car seat. Remember to refer to your car seat manual for instructions on the proper installation and harness placement for your car seat. Our Officers are trained to check car seats for proper installation. Please contact us to make an appointment. For more information go to: https://www.safekids.org/ultimate-car-seat-guide/
