MONMOUTH COUNTY – Sheriff Golden of the Monmouth County Sheriff’s Office of New Jersey (MCSONJ) recently announced that the MCSONJ collected a total of 14 pounds of prescription drugs on Saturday, April 28, during National Prescription Drug Takeback Day.

In addition, 22 pounds were collected from the MCSO permanent collection site last week.

This effort and participation by residents helps reduce the amount of prescription drugs that is readily available to our children. That’s vital since opiate and heroin abuse are often fueled by prescription drug abuse.
