Yesterday Lt. Patchin delivered 94.8 pounds of unused and unwanted medications to Petoskey Department of Public Safety for proper disposal. These medications represent a 6-month collection from our Drug Drop Box located just outside the front entry door at the Gerrish Twp. Police Department. This is double the amount that was turned in from our last disposal.
Our drug drop box is available to the public and can be utilized anytime. If you have a large container or quantity that does not look like it will fit in the pull-out drawer of the box, just ring the door buzzer and someone will meet you to take the drugs and give them to our officer in charge of collection. Please note that the building is normally staffed during the day time hours from 7:00 am – 4:00 pm, however, the drop box is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
