The Sherwood Police Department is hosting a drug take-back day, child safety seat clinic the last Saturday of October
The Sherwood Police Department has a busy October planned with events that will allow residents to drop off old prescriptions, make sure their children are safe in the car and collect money for the Special Olympics Oregon.
On Saturday, Oct. 26, police will hold a free prescription drug take-back event from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Sherwood Police Department, 204495 S.W. Borchers Drive.
Residents can drop off expired or unwanted prescription medications, unneeded over-the-counter medicines, drugs that are no longer used, unknown tablets and capsules and other drugs. Drugs should remain in their original containers if possible. No thermometers, needles or medical waste will be accepted.
Also on Oct. 26, police will host a car seat check-up clinic, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. also at the Borchers Drive location. To ensure correct installation and faster service, please read and bring your car seat instructions and vehicle owners manual. A certified technician will help parents and caregivers learn to install and use their child restraints properly. Each car seat check will take about 30 minutes.
Finally, on Oct. 12 Sherwood officers will trade in their handcuffs to spend the day at the Sherwood Red Robin restaurant, serving customers. All of their special tips will be donated to the Special Olympics Oregon, which serves more than 10,000 participants throughout the state, benefiting those with intellectual disabilities.
