On April 27th, 2019, from 10:00 Am until 2:00 PM, the Seneca County Sheriff’s Office will be sponsoring a dual public safety event. The first will be a Take Back Day for citizens to turn in unwanted and expired medications. Deputies will be on hand to collect these medications at two locations: The Law Enforcement Center at 6150 Route 96, Romulus and the Waterloo North Station 44 West William Street, Waterloo. No questions will be asked and no paperwork is required. During these same hours at the L.E.C. Deputies will be offering the Operation Safe Child Identification Program. This program furnishes parents or guardians with a child I.D. card and allows quick dissemination of vital information in the event a child becomes missing. The child must be present to be photographed and a parent or guardian must give written permission.
Sheriff Luce stated that both of these programs are proven to enhance public safety and public service. Proper disposal of unwanted/expired medication keeps it from getting into the wrong hands– especially youth.
Time is always a critical issue with a missing child. Operation Safe Child enables Law Enforcement to get the information out quickly and effectively increasing the odds of a safe return.
