In this letter to the editor, UTMB Police Chief Thomas Engells writes that the UTMB Police Department has been actively involved in the National Prescription Drug Take Back Initiative since 2010. “The Drug Enforcement Administration reports that the previous five take-back events have resulted in more than 2 million pounds of prescription medications taken out of circulation. Locally, 462 pounds (fall 2011) and 568 pounds (spring 2012) were collected at the UTMB Specialty Care Center at Victory Lakes in League City.”
