WICHITA, Kansas -- The Sedgwick County Sheriff's Office and the DEA are teaming up to fight crime.
This Saturday, they will try to get prescription drugs off the streets and away from kids.
"We know the data suggests the prescription drug abuse is a rapidly growing area of substance abuse," said Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt. "And so the last (thing) we want to do is make readily available unwanted medications that are in a grandparent or parent medicine cabinet, perhaps forgotten that can be readily diverted either by a kid who is experimenting."
April 27 is National Prescription Drug Take Back Day. The goal is to get prescriptions away from kids who may want to abuse drugs they find in their family's medicine cabinet.

"It's free," said Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt. "It's anonymous. It's a no-questions asked opportunity to clean out the medicine cabinets and make them a little bit safer."
The hours to drop off medicines are from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Saturday.
