    Drug Take Back Day is September 27th.

    The Rome Police Department has partnered with Walgreens for the next D.E.A. nationwide prescription pill take back initiative scheduled for Saturday, September 27, 2014.  Area residents should bring unwanted, expired or unused prescription medication to Walgreens, 201 South James Street in Rome on Saturday,  September 27, 2014 between 10am and 2pm. for safe disposal.  Many prescription drugs are as dangerous as street drugs and studies have shown that the majority of abused prescription medications are obtained from family or friends, including the home medicine cabinet. For further information regarding the National Prescription Pill Take Back Initiative, visit the D.E.A. website Click Here or contact the Rome Police Detective Division at (315) 339-7715.
