operationtakebacknjThe Ridgefield Park Police Department Community Policing Unit will be participating in the bi-annual Operation Take Back Program sponsored by the Drug Enforcement Agency. This program enables the public to get rid of unused, unwanted and expired medications properly. The old method of flushing the pills down the toilet has been found to be harmful to the environment and drinking water. The pills are also being abused by adolescents. Last year Ridgefield Park Police collected over 25 pounds of pills for disposal.



Date: Saturday, October 28, 2017

Hours:  10:00 am – 2:00 pm
Location:  Ridgefield Park Police Department Headquarters (Park Street Entrance)

Any questions regarding regarding the collection contact Lt. Brian Hippe at
