Don’t Get Tricked - Know Your Limit
Ahead of Halloween the Annapolis Police Department is holding a Know Your Limit event on Saturday, October 21 from 9pm to 11:30pm at Market Space. Officers will be on foot near the Market House offering free breathalyzer tests. Volunteer participants will be asked if they feel safe to drive a car, and then blow into a portable breathalyzer. Participants will be told what their blood alcohol content is and given an educational card with information on alcohol consumption and options to get home safely. For this event we are also teaming up with the Annapolis Substance Abuse Prevention (ASAP) Coalition to educate people about binge drinking. According to the 2016 Maryland Young Adult Survey on Alcohol (MYSA) half of 18 to 25 year olds who drink are binge drinking and don’t realize it.
Trunk or Treat
Join us at St. Martin’s Lutheran Church at 1120 Spa Rd for a Trunk or Treat spooktacular night on 10/27 from 6pm to 8:30pm. Officers will be handing out treats and tricking out their police cars for this event. For more information visit the St. Martin’s Trunk-or-Treat Facebook page at http://bit.ly/2z29CQG.

National Drug Take Back Event
On Saturday, 10/28, from 10am to 2pm the Annapolis Police Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will give the public its 14th opportunity in seven years to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs. Bring your pills for disposal to the Annapolis Police Department at 199 Taylor Avenue. (The DEA cannot accept liquids or needles or sharps, only pills or patches.) The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.
