(10-11-22) The Mercer County Sheriff’s Office along with the St. Henry Police Department will be participating in the DEA’s National Prescription Drug Take Back Day on October 29th, 2022 from 10am to 2pm. Deputies will be at St. Henry’s town square collecting unused prescriptions/medications and over the counter drugs and vitamins.

We would like to remind citizens, for liquid medications, you can mix with an unpalatable substance such as dirt, cat litter, or used coffee grounds then place the mixture in a container such as a sealed plastic bag and throw the container in your household trash.

If you are unable to make it October 29th, feel free to stop by our office any time and use our drug drop box located in our lobby. Please help to put an end the opioid epidemic by properly disposing of unused medications.
