Katy ISD Collects 20 Boxes of Prescription Medication on DEA Take Back Day

(KATY ISD) – On Saturday, Oct. 28, the Katy ISD Police Department hosted the biannual National Prescription Drug Take Back Day event at the district’s Law Enforcement Center. Community members were encouraged to actively participate in drug prevention by taking advantage of a convenient service to safely dispose of prescription medications that were potentially dangerous, expired, unused, or unwanted. More than 200 people dropped off medication at the event and the Katy ISD Police Department collected a total of 20 boxes of prescription medication from the community.

“We are deeply grateful to our community for their support and participation in the National Prescription Drug Take Back Day event,” said Henry Gaw, Chief of Police at Katy ISD. “Their commitment to the safety and well-being of our community is truly commendable."

The DEA’s National Prescription Drug Take Back Day event demonstrates Katy ISD’s commitment to educate the community to reduce and prevent substance abuse. In addition to public information campaigns such as fentanyl awareness and information sessions through the Legacy Parent Academy, the district will continue to explore ways to safeguard the well-being of its students and partner with the community.
