On Saturday, September 27th, 2014, the Galt Police Department in partnership with the Department of Justice and the Drug Enforcement Administration collected 95 pounds of prescription medications in the National Prescription Drug Take Back Day in the City of Galt.

This was the second Prescription Drug Take Back Day in the city this year. In 2014 in the greater Galt community, 140 pounds of prescription medications have been removed from homes.

With our local residents bringing in and removing the medication from their homes, they are not targeted during residential burglaries, and they can not become part of the drug trade at the street level. We would like to thank the following members in the business community who have helped in promoting this event to keep our streets free from prescription medications getting into the wrong hands.
