Mansfield police officers and the DEA joined forces to cut down on careless disposal of unused or expired prescription medications. The National Take-Back Initiative, a program that started in 2010, typically takes place twice a year. One collection happens in the spring, the other in the fall.

The program aims to curb prescription drug abuse. Getting rid of the unused medication is free and easy. Donators can drive up, hand an officer a bag full of pills - no liquids or needles - and drive away. Putting pills in a plastic baggie eliminates the need for officers to open up loads of plastic bottles and containers and cuts the amount of time spent collecting the pills in half. After giving the unused medications to police officers, officers then hand the pills over to DEA officials who can dispose of them properly.

"This is important for a couple of reasons," said Sgt. Joseph Petrycki of Mansfield Police. "One - it keeps unused medication out of the hands of people that may be addicted to prescription medication. That also includes people who might unknowingly get into it, such as juveniles and teenagers. Two - it also helps the environment out by not contaminating the water and things of that nature."
