FARMVILLE —  On Saturday, April 29, the Farmville Police Department and Longwood University Police Department will again join with law enforcement agencies across the nation to participate in the 13th National Drug Take Back Initiative. 

“This initiative is designed to remove potentially dangerous prescription and other medications from homes by allowing citizens to anonymously dispose of them in a safe manner,” police said in a press release.

From 10 a.m.-2 p.m., officers from both departments will collect unwanted or expired medications at Midtown Square between Barnes & Noble Bookstore and Chick-fil-A.
