HILLSBORO POLICE TAKING BACK UNWANTED PRESCRIPTION DRUGS September 27th, 2014  -  10:00 AM - 2:00 PM

 

 

The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) has scheduled another National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day which will take place on Saturday, September 27th, 2014, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. This is a great opportunity for those who missed the previous events, or who have subsequently accumulated unwanted, unused prescription drugs, to safely dispose of those medications.

 The American people have again responded overwhelmingly to the most recent DEA-led National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day. On April 28th, citizens turned in a record-breaking 552,161 pounds (276 tons) of unwanted or expired medications for safe and proper disposal at the 5,659 take-back sites that were available in all 50 states and U.S. territories. When the results of the four Take-Back Days to date are combined, the DEA and its state, local, and tribal law-enforcement and community partners have removed over 1.5 million pounds (774 tons) of medication from circulation.

 "We are pleased at the response of the American people once again, and we thank them for participating and contributing to the battle against prescription drug abuse," said DEA Administrator Michele M. Leonhart, who added that 4,268 agencies participated with DEA nationwide in Saturday's event. "While a uniform system for prescription drug disposal is being finalized, we will continue to sponsor these important take-back opportunities as a service to our communities. Our take-back events highlight the problems related to prescription drug abuse and give our citizens an opportunity to contribute to the solution. These events are only made possible through the dedicated work and commitment of our state, federal, local, and tribal partners and DEA thanks each and every one of them for their efforts on behalf of the American people."

 

 Novembeard Challenge

 

The Hillsboro Police Department will be participating in the Second Annual “Novembeard Challenge” to help raise awareness for men’s health issues, particularly Testicular and Prostate Cancers.  Chief David Roarick has once again agreed to lift restrictions on male officer’s facial hair.  The Officers will be allowed to forgo shaving for the entire month of November.  This continues a tradition that began in 2012 in which the department was able to help raise over $1,000 for the Friends of Norris Cotton Cancer Center (FNCCC).     

Once again the Hillsboro Police Employees’ Association (HPEA), NEPBA Local 51 has pledged a donation to the Friends of Norris Cotton Cancer Center.  This year HPEA Local 51 will make a donation of $100 for each officer that is able to go the entire month without shaving.  In addition to that, Livingston’s Auto Body of Hillsboro has pledged to donate $10 from every tow call they have during the month of November to FNCCC as well.  HPEA Local 51 encourages everyone to participate in this fundraiser or make a donation.       

The Friends of Norris Cotton Cancer Center is a volunteer organization that specifically supports Norris Cotton Cancer Center of New Hampshire.  Out of approximately 1500 accredited cancer centers in the country the Norris Cotton Cancer Center (NCCC) is one of just 41 Comprehensive Cancer Centers as designated by the National Cancer Institute.  That means NCCC excels in research, care, education and outreach.  Research is key to finding a cure, and because of their research, patients have access to cutting-edge treatments and clinical trials provided by some of the best cancer doctors anywhere.  Research conducted at NCCC also affects patient treatment all over the world.

NCCC has 17 locations throughout New Hampshire and Vermont where they provide NCCC cancer care.  There are five named centers:  In Lebanon, Keene, Manchester, and Nashua, N.H., and in St. Johnsbury, Vermont. NH partnership locations include Claremont, Lancaster, Littleton, New London, Plymouth, Peterboro and Woodsville.  More information can be found at www.Cancer.Dartmouth.edu.

The Hillsboro Police Department and Hillsboro Police Employees’ Association encourages everyone to make a donation.  Donations can be sent to:

Friends of Norris Cotton Cancer Center- DHMC

1 Medical Center Dr.

Lebanon, NH 03756

 

Please make a note with your donation that this is being made as part of the HPD Novembeard Challenge.  

 

New look for Hillsboro's cruisers

 

As you can see we have changed our cruiser graphics. What do you think?

For the past 25 years the cruisers have been classic black and white with a non-reflective seal on the door. It was time for a change! Other than the refreshed look the new graphics offer the following advantages:

---- The new graphic package is reflective for added officer safety and better visibility to the community

---- The new Ford cruisers no longer come factory painted black and white. We had to paint the car in the black/white scheme. With the new graphics, we can order a plain black car saving the cost of painting them.

---- When the cruisers get rotated back to “unmarked” (toward the end of their lifecycle), we will not have to repaint them black. We will only need to remove the door graphics.

---- For cars that are auctioned and not rotated to unmarked, we would expect to see a higher resale value because they will be solid black and not the black/white scheme the buyer would have to repaint.

We hope you are as proud of the new design as we are. Please let us know.

Thank You,

-Chief David Roarick

HILLSBORO PD HOSTS NATIONAL TAKE BACK INITIATIVE SITE

APRIL 30, 2011  -  10:00 AM - 2:00 PM

This initiative addresses a vital public safety and public health issue.  More than seven million Americans currently abuse prescription drugs, according to the 2009 Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration’s National Survey on Drug Use and Health.  Each day, approximately, 2,500 teens use prescription drugs to get high for the first time according to the Partnership for a Drug Free America.  Studies show that a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including the home medicine cabinet.

 

In an effort to address this problem, DEA, in conjunction with state and local law enforcement agencies throughout the United States, conducted the first ever National Prescription Drug Take Back Day on Saturday, September 25, 2010.  The purpose of this National Take Back Day was to provide a venue for persons who wanted to dispose of unwanted and unused prescription drugs.  This effort was a huge success in removing potentially dangerous prescription drugs, particularly controlled substances, from our nation’s medicine cabinets.  There were approximately 3,000 state and local law enforcement agencies throughout the nation that participated in the event.  All told, the American Public turned in more than 121 tons of pills on this first National Take Back Day.

 

Due to the overwhelming success of the first event, DEA has scheduled the second National Prescription Drug Take Back Day which will take place on Saturday, April 30, 2011, from 10:00 am - 2:00 pm.  This is a great opportunity for those who missed the first event or who have subsequently accumulated unwanted, unused prescription drugs, to safely dispose of them.
