The Wayne County Sheriff’s Office and Safe Kids Wayne County recently participated in the National Drug Take back event.

As a result, 58 pounds of unused, unwanted or expired prescription and over the counter medications were turned over to the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) for proper disposal.

Sheriff John Carter would like to thank those that participated and supported the event.  We would also like to remind everyone that there is a permanent drop box located in the lobby of the Sheriff’s Office. This drop box is available during regular business hours. Please note we cannot accept liquids, needles, or sharps.

Once again, we would like to thank the Jesup Walmart and the citizens of Wayne County for helping to make our community a safer place.
