   Some items of local interest;

    On Saturday 30- April  The Bogota Police Dept. will once again  participate in Operation Take Back from 10:00a to 2:00p. This is a joint effort between Local Law Enforcement  and the DEA. to help people dispose of old medications. A box will be placed on the entrance of Police Headquarters, located on West Broad St., so citizens can use it anonymously.

The the box will be pick-up by the DEA and be disposed of in a safe & environmentally responsible way. 
   This action is also part of the Borough's Sustainable Jersey certification. It keeps drugs away from non approved users and removes the waste from our waterways.
