To ensure that your children have a safe Halloween, please make sure that they observe the following guidelines:

  • Always go trick-or-treating with a grownup.
  • Visit only neighborhoods you know.
  • Make sure your costume lets you move, see, and hear easily.
  • Wear a light-colored or bright costume so drivers can see you.
  • Put reflective patches or strips on your costume.
  • Carry a flashlight or glow stick.
  • Stay in well-lit areas.
  • Watch out for cars.
  • Have your parents check your candy before you eat it.

 

 

 

DISPOSE OF UNNEEDED MEDICATIONS


Safe and timely disposal of unneeded prescription medications, especially 
opioids, has never been more important than it is today.


In addition to keeping these substances out of our water supply, safe disposal of unneeded medication helps to keep drugs out of the hands of people who might abuse them. 

Abuse of certain prescription medications, which has led many people into addiction and heroin use, has become a deadly epidemic across the United States. This opioid epidemic is the focus of a major initiative by Attorney General Josh Stein.

Even non-opioid drugs present dangers if kept in a household when they are no longer needed.  They can be ingested accidentally by children or visitors, mistaken for a use they are not intended, etc.  Bring any and all prescription medicine that you no longer need to the Police Department for safe destruction.

The Pineville Police Department has installed a permanent medicine drop box in the lobby of our Department.  There is access to this area 24/7.  Please feel free to bring in your medications and deposit them in the box.  It is a completely anonymous process and will not take you any time at all.
