Do you have prescription drugs lying around the house?

Coroner Bob Gessner, Sheriff Mike Downey, Chief Brian Brucato, State’s Attorney Jim Rowe, Mayor Chuck Steele, Board Mmeber Tinker Paker and the Kankakee Area Metropolitan Enforcement Group (KAMEG) are proud to partner on this initiative.

The program runs from 10am-noon on Saturday.
