Drug Take Back Program

The Drug Take Back Program aims to provide a safe means of disposal for prescription medications as well as educate the community about the potential for abuse of medications. The Lake Forest Park Police Department is proud to support this program, and has its own disposal center located at their office.  Police officers do not have access to the drug box and citizens will need to speak to records personnel.
