  •     On Saturday, April 26, the Polk County Sheriff’s Office, Crookston Police Department, East Grand Forks Police Department and the Pine-To-Prairie Drug Task Force will coordinate with the DEA with another collaborative effort focused on removing potentially dangerous controlled substances from our nation’s medicine cabinets.     
        A national take-back day will provide a unified opportunity for the public to surrender expired, unwanted, or unused pharmaceutical controlled substances and other medications to law enforcement officers for destruction.     
        This one-day effort will bring national focus to the issue of pharmaceutical controlled substance abuse.     
        The program provides an opportunity for law enforcement, prevention, treatment, and the business community to collaborate and establish a safe collection site for all Americans, regardless of where they reside.   
        Collection sites from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. that day will be the Crookston Police Department, East Grand Forks Police Department and Fosston Law Enforcement Center.   
        Controlled, non-controlled, and over the counter substances may be collected.  No “Sharps” will be accepted, however.   
        If you have any questions call Sgt. Michael Norland with the Polk County Sheriff’s Office  at 470-8301, the Crookston Police Department at 281-3111 or the East Grand Forks Police Department at 773-1104.
