“I encourage anyone with expired or unused prescription drugs to take advantage of this opportunity to dispose of them safely and properly,” said U.S. Attorney Johnson. "I especially applaud the law enforcement at Cheyenne River for their efforts in securing five locations on the reservation as drop-off sites. I’m hopeful that residents of these tribal communities will join in this effort to help ensure these drugs don’t harm people or the environment.” Assistant U.S. Attorney Kathryn Rich will be on hand in Eagle Butte for the event.
Take-Back Day is a cooperative effort between the DEA; the U.S. Attorney’s Office; national, state, local, and tribal law enforcement officials; and community coalition groups who work together to support and provide this community service.
