Prescription Medication Drop Off

The West Allis Police Department has a 24/7 prescription medication drop off box in the front lobby of the police department, which is located at:
11301 W Lincoln Avenue
West Allis, WI 53214

This drop off box was funded by the West Allis-West Milwaukee Community Coalition.

This program is completely anonymous and helps our environment, prevents accidental poisoning, prevents identity theft, and helps reduce substance abuse and drug distribution.
