Prescription Drop-Off

The Westfield Police Department has an unused prescription drop box in the lobby of the Westfield Public Safety Building, located at 17535 Dartown Rd. Lobby hours are 7:30 AM - 4:00 PM, Monday - Friday. The drop-off provides a secure location for people to deposit unused prescription medication, and is part of a larger effort by the Indiana Attorney General’s office to combat the misuse of prescription drugs.

“Our goal is to keep Westfield residents safe from danger,” says Chief of Police Joel Rush. “Sometimes dangerous situations don’t arise from robberies or shootings. Sometimes that danger can come from everyday sources, such as the misuse or abuse of prescription medication.”

According to the attorney general’s office, every 25 minutes someone dies from a prescription drug overdose, and 1 in 20 people have used prescription pain killers for non-medical reasons in the United States. Unused medication and the general misuse of medication beyond its original purpose invites crime.  By setting a good example of proper use and disposal, we keep our children and communities safe.
