On Saturday, Oct. 29, 2022, the Kankakee Area Metropolitan Enforcement Group (KAMEG), the Pledge for Life Partnership, State Representative Jackie Haas, Senator Patrick Joyce, the Kankakee County Health Department, Riverside Healthcare and local Law Enforcement partnered with the Drug Enforcement Administration in the National Prescription Take Back Day at the Northfield Square Mall. KAMEG Director Clay Wolfe reported that the event was an overwhelming success with approximately 950 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 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.
KAMEG is comprised of personnel from the Bradley, Bourbonnais, and Kankakee Police Departments, as well as the Illinois State Police, the Kankakee County Sheriff’s Department, and the Kankakee County State’s Attorney’s Office.
