The Dublin Division of Police will work with Dublin Methodist Hospital to collect medication from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, April 30.

The two will hold medication-disposal day, to be held at the hospital, 7500 Hospital Drive, and accept expired and unused prescriptions and over-the-counter medications.

"Dublin police will be present at the event to answer questions and provide information on strategies to safely store medications and prevent misuse and abuse," Sgt. Rod Barnes said in a news release from the city. "Participating in this initiative is a natural extension of the division's efforts to keep Dublin safe."

After the medication is collected it will be disposed of safely and legally.


The Dublin Division of Police cautioned Dublin students against participating in senior tag.

Dublin police and other law-enforcement agencies have received complaints "about reckless driving, criminal trespassing and other illegal or dangerous acts related to teenagers involved in 'senior tag' activities" in previous years, a news release from Dublin said.

"These actions create a concern for the safety of students and others in the community," Sgt. Rodney Barnes said in the release. "Dublin school officials and Dublin police school resource officers will address these concerns with the seniors in Dublin high schools."

The Dublin police ask parents to discourage senior-tag activities as it is not school sponsored.

For information on preventing senior tag, contact the Dublin Division of Police Community Education Unit at (614) 410-4800.

In senior tag, teens stalk and chase one another around town while naked, aiming to hit opponents with water from squirt guns. The last one standing wins. The game typically lasts for weeks.
