Winnipeg police are looking for drugs.
Unwanted prescription drugs, to be specific, as the service is opening four different disposal outlets for the public Saturday. Dubbed ‘National Prescription Drug Drop Off’ day, unwanted prescription drugs can be dropped off anonymously from 8:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. at the following locations:
- Public Safety Building Service Centre, 151 Princess St.
- East District Service Centre, 1750 Dugald Rd.
- District 3 Service Centre, 260 Hartford Ave.
- West District Service Centre, 2321 Grant Ave.
The event is sponsored by the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police, in partnership with the Canadian Centre on Substance Abuse, Public Safety Canada along with the Manitoba Society of Pharmacists and the College of Pharmacists of Manitoba.
Police remind the public that the proper disposal of medication is available year round at their local pharmacy through the Manitoba Medication Return Program.
