Farmingville, NY - On December 3, Councilman Kevin LaValle and the Suffolk County Police Department (SCPD) Sixth Precinct hosted “Operation Medicine Cabinet and Mobile Office Hours” at the Sachem Public Library in Holbrook. More than 100 residents participated by dropping off 60 lbs. of old or expired medications for safe disposal by the SCPD. Many residents also took the opportunity to speak with Councilman LaValle about a variety of subjects relating to the Town of Brookhaven and specifically Council District 3. Councilman LaValle also collected seven bags of toys donated to the Town of Brookhaven Youth Bureau INTERFACE Toy Drive. Residents also donated $500 in Stop and Shop gift cards and $200 in Target gift cards for the INTERFACE Holiday Food Drive.

Councilman LaValle said, “The public’s response to Operation Medicine Cabinet made it one of the most successful drug takebacks of 2020. Thank you to the Sachem Public Library and the Suffolk County Police Department Sixth Precinct officers for helping to get these dangerous drugs out of homes where they can be dangerous in the wrong hands.”
