IPD Launches Safe Medication Disposal Program to Reduce Drug Accessibility, Misuse and Accidental Po

The Irwindale Police Department is pleased to partner with The Rite Aid Foundation’s KidCents Safe Medication Disposal Program, a public safety initiative focused on reducing drug accessibility, medication misuse and accidental poisoning among children and adolescents. 

As part of the KidCents Safe Medication Disposal Program, the Irwindale Police Department received a medication disposal bin, which has been placed in the police station lobby. 

“The Rite Aid Foundation and KidCents is proud to partner with local law enforcement agencies to help address drug abuse and accidental poisonings, both of which pose a serious threat to the health and safety of our nation’s young people,” said Rite Aid Executive Vice President of Pharmacy Jocelyn Konrad. “We look forward to working with the Irwindale Police Department and law enforcement agencies across the country to bring disposal units to the communities we serve and to deliver on The Rite Aid Foundation’s mission of improving the health and well-being of kids.” 

Irwindale Police Chief Ty Henshaw said, “We are proud to partner with KidCents and The Rite Aid Foundation to create a safer environment for our children, families and community. This partnership is one more way in which we can fight drug abuse and misuse and ultimately make our community safer.”  

The medication disposal bin is available in the police station lobby anytime during business hours, allowing our community the ability to safely and anonymously dispose of prescription and over-the-counter medications that are no longer needed or have expired.  Illegal drugs, needles, liquid or lotion medications or medical waste will not be accepted.
