Governor Chris Christie spoke at headquarters today about the opiate crisis. He was joined by Mayor Tom Kelaher, Ocean County prosecutor Joe Coronato, and Police Chief Mitch Little. They spoke about project medicine drop and how people can dispose of unused medication in a safe way. Anyone who wishes to get rid of unused pills can bring them to Toms River police headquarters. Plans are in the works to have Walgreens Pharmacies state wide become a secure collections site. The Governor praised Toms River Police Department as being at the forefront of collecting these medications and keeping them out of the hands of those wishing to abuse them. Last year we collected 2,000 pounds of unused medication form residents through our onsite collection box as well as community outreach events.
