NEW KENT, Va. – The New Kent Sheriff’s Office in conjunction with the DEA will be participating the the Nation Drug Take Back on October 27.

The public is invited to bring unwanted or expired narcotics to the New Kent Sheriff’s Office between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.

The items that will be collected will be deposited and transported to a location where they will be appropriately destroyed.
