National Drug Take Back

Each year, JPD participates in National Drug Take Back Day. Volunteers collect expired or unneeded medications for proper disposal.

Studies show that family and friends are the main source of abused prescription drugs. Drug overdose deaths are the leading cause of unintentional injury deaths in the U.S., exceeding vehicle fatalities by 50 percent. In Arkansas the crime lab reports a projected 340 deaths for 2018 for all overdoses.

JPD also maintains a secure collection receptacle outside the police station at 1001 S. Caraway that is available 24/7. The Department is proud to be able to help our community dispose of unneeded medication to help combat prescription drug abuse.

Bring your unused, expired, or unneeded medications to the Jonesboro Police Department on Saturday, April 27 between 10am and 2pm and they will be properly disposed of in such a way that is environmentally responsible.
