Toms River Police to Participate in National Prescription Drug Take Back Day PDF Print E-mail

The Toms River Police Department, along with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) New Jersey Division, would like to invite the public to participate in this year’s National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day which will take place on Saturday, April 26, 2014.

Toms River residents who want to rid their homes of potentially dangerous prescription drugs in a safe and non-hazardous manner will be able to do so between the hours of 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Toms River Police Department, 255 Oak Avenue, Toms River (Front lobby of the Police Department).

The DEA cannot accept liquids or needles, only pills or patches. The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.

The National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day aims to provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposing prescription drugs, while also educating the general public about the potential for abuse of medications.

According to the DEA, seventy percent of young people abusing prescription pain relievers get them through friends or family.

In addition to this growing drug problem, unused and expired prescription medications can also represent an environmental hazard. Most individuals are not aware of methods to properly dispose of their unused medicine, often flushing them down the toilet or throwing them away; both of which have potential safety and health hazards.

The Toms River Police Department would also like to remind residents that they can dispose of unused or expired medication on a year-round basis. The drop-off site at Police Headquarters remains open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

JCP&L Scam Alert PDF Print E-mail

The Toms River Police Department has had at least six incidents recently where local businesses and residents have been the victim of a fraud scheme in which a suspect identifies themselves as a Jersey Central Power and Light employee.  One local business was contacted by phone and told that they had an overdue bill in the amount of $2,279 and that if a cash payment was not made, their electricity would be shut off.  The business owner knew that he was not in arrears so he phoned JCP&L and they confirmed that he was being scammed. One business unfortunately fell victim to the fraud and reported paying that scammers by way of “Money Pack” cards.

 

We urge our residents to be cautious when giving out personal information over the phone and to take notes during any suspicious calls that may be helpful to investigators.  Jersey Central Power and Light advises residents to contact them directly at the phone number on their bill to check the status of their account, if they are ever contacted over the phone.  To read the full release, click here.
