We have just completed another successful year for National Night Out. Despite our state of the economy, there were just as many events this year. I would like to thank our neighborhood groups, sponsors, elected officials and the police staff for an enjoyable evening despite the threat of storms and the intense heat. I am looking forward to 2010.
The Meridian Police Department in partnership with the fire department just kicked off our seventh public safety academy September 5th, this our biggest class yet. Several academies ago we cut back to once a year because of a slow interest or concern for the time commitment. We added a second class this fall as the interest picked up. We owe a big thanks to our alumni for spreading the good word because we did not advertise this latest class. Please contact Melissa Delaney at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have interest in our next PSA coming spring of 2010.
Dispose of Your Unused Medications Safely!
If you have unused, unnecessary, or expired prescription or over-the-counter medications in your home, this program offers a safe, hassle-free way for you to dispose of them properly.
Do not flush medicines down the toilet or dump them down the drain, as they could ultimately end of polluting our water supply. Do not just leave them sitting unattended where teens/adults looking for a cheap high could abuse them or where they could tempt young children. Bring them in and know that they will be disposed of properly with no questions asked.
You can bring them to be disposed of at the Meridian Police Department at 1401 E. Watertower from 8 AM to 5 PM Monday through Friday.
Kick off will be Oct. 1, please contact Lt. John Overton at email@example.com if you have additional questions.
