The Police Departments in Branson and Forsyth are among those listed as participating in the Annual Fall Drug Take Back Day.
This event coordinated nationally by the Drug Enforcement Agency encourages people with unused Prescription Drugs to return them to prevent them from being used illegally or to be abused.
Besides the Branson and Forsyth Police Departments, other locations listed taking part in the event include the Monett Police Department with the Aurora Police Department running a collection site at Wal-Mart and the Nixa Police Department hosting a site at CVS Pharmacy.
The event is scheduled to take place this Saturday from 10 am until 2 pm at most locations.
