OWENSBORO, KY (11/4/11) - The City of Owensboro will now have a new tool in its fight against drug abuse.

According to a press release sent out by Owensboro Police Department, an application submitted to the National Association of Drug Diversion Investigators was accepted, and Owensboro Police Department, and the Daviess County Sheriff’s Department have both received drop boxes for the disposal of unwanted or unused prescription drugs.

The NADDI has received grant funding from Endo Pharmaceuticals to provide 100 drop boxes to be distributed nationally to local law enforcement agencies.

These drop boxes will be used in conjunction with the Alliance for a Drug Free Owensboro-Daviess County.

OPD’s drop box may be found in the lobby of the Owensboro Police Station at the corner of 9th and J.R. Miller Blvd. The drop box may receive pills and patches, but any liquids or needles will not be accepted.
