Did you know??

The TPD usually participates in a DRUG Takeback event in partnership with the DEA every year.

While the TPD will still participate in those events, NOW we have a new MEDSAFE. What is a MEDSAFE? This is a storage container in the Topeka Police Department Lobby in which you can dispose of any expired or unwanted prescription medications.

PLEASE- No liquids more than 4 oz.

No sharps(needles,syringes,etc),or hazardous materials.

Feel free to drop off those unused,expired or unwanted medications 24/7 in the TPD Lobby- a service to you, our community.

Have you been to the Topeka & Shawnee County Public Library to see the African American Builders Showcase?? TPDs own OFC Bell is highlighted within this exhibit. He brought his High School Track and Field medals- the most any student has every achieved.
OFC Bell takes the lead with the “OK” (Our Kids) program and continues to achieve successes with the students he mentors and the building of relationships with those men within the community who have taken the step forward to also be mentors. Congratulations OFC Bell!

In times like these, we must come together, and get through stronger
