The Dover Police Department is issuing a reminder to citizens on the proper use of the drug drop box located in the lobby of the police department.  The secured box is available 24 hours a day to citizens for the secure disposal of medications only.  In recent months, the department has received bulk disposal from businesses in Dover, as well as liquids, syringes, and other items that the box is not designed for.  The Dover Police drug box is only for the disposal of non-liquid medications that citizens are looking to safely discard.  We ask that businesses and clinics follow their proper protocols for disposal of medications and that liquids and syringes are NOT disposed of at the police department.
