Med Lock Boxes for Home

ATTENTION TO ALL COMMUNITY MEMBERS WHO WISH TO SECURE THEIR MEDICATIONS AT HOME

Do you have a concern about the theft of medications that you have around the house?  This is a very realistic concern.  Police are commonly called by residents who notice that their medicine bottles are missing, or find that someone has been in their home while they were gone, but nothing appears missing.  Your medications, especially pain medications are a target for drug abusers.

You may be already locking them up in a home safe.  But there may be another solution.  Through a recent grant, one of our local partners, Better Brodhead, has obtained medical lock boxes.  They are similar to a small safe, and an excellent idea for locking up your medications.  And, THEY ARE FREE.

There will be a supply at the Monroe Police Department after February 14, 2020.  You can visit the PD 24/7 to pick one up, just come into the lobby and ask.
