Last Saturday, the McPherson Police Department participated in the National Prescription Drug Take Back Day, and took in 98 pounds of prescription drugs for destruction by the Drug Enforcement Adminstration. The next Prescription Take Back Day will most likely take place in April 2018.

Other than authorized Prescription Drug Take Back Days, the department is unable to accept prescription medications.
