On Saturday, April 30, 2022, the Kankakee Area Metropolitan Enforcement Group (KAMEG), the Pledge for Life Partnership, Riverside Healthcare, State Representative Jackie Haas and local Law Enforcement partnered with the Drug Enforcement Administration in the National Prescription Drug Take Back Day at the Northfield Square Mall. KAMEG Director Clayt Wolfe reported the event was an overwhelming success with approximately 800 pounds of unwanted prescription drugs turned in for disposal in Kankakee County alone.
KAMEG would like to thank area residents for their continued support and for assisting in the event to make our communities safer.
KAMEG reminds the public to call KAMEG at (815) 933-1710 or visit www.kameg.org to report non-emergency information about drug dealing and gang problems. We recognize our partnership with the public is important for quality of life issues for our citizens and children.
