Most Teens Get Their Drugs From FRIENDS And FAMILY For FREE!
“More teens abuse prescription drugs than any illicit drug except marijuana - more than cocaine, heroin and methamphetamine combined,” — 2006 National Survey on Drug Use and Health. Medications that are flushed can end up in our water supply and can contaminate rivers and streams. Safely dispose of medications at the participating police departments listed below.
Just stop by the Police Department and drop off your drugs in the locked box in the main lobby of the City Building. You do not need to sign anything just drop your medications off and we will dispose of them properly. The drugs will be incinerated as well as the containers they are dropped off in, so you do not need to remove labels unless you wish to do so. You can leave medications in the original containers and you may mark out your name with a permanent marker if you wish. Dropping off the drugs is done anonymously – you do not have to give your name. If you have any questions please call the Police Department(s) at the number listed below.

Crime Prevention and Neighborhood Block Watch
A neighborhood watch program educates residents in crime prevention practices to report suspicious activity to the Police Department and to secure their homes and properties. A neighborhood watch gives the Police Department and residents a chance to work together and can be a strong deterrent to crime. If you are interested in starting a neighborhood watch group, please contact the Police Department.
Home and Business Security Surveys
Security surveys are provided free of charge to any Fort Wright resident or business by the Police Department, and are intended to give an evaluation on the safety and security of your premises.

If you are going on vacation, please call and we will fill out a vacation check form. The form lists important information, such as how to contact you or another designated person in the event of an emergency. The telephone numbers for alarm companies are helpful too. We will keep an “extra eye” on your home while you are away and can advise you on precautions to take before you leave.

Rape Aggression Defense - Self-Defense for Women
The Rape Aggression Defense System or R.A.D. is a program of realistic self-defense tactics and techniques for women. The R.A.D. System is a comprehensive, women-only course that begins with awareness, prevention, risk reduction and risk avoidance, while progressing on to the basics of hand-on defense training. R.A.D. is not a martial arts program. The program covers prone defense strategies, multiple subject encounters and even low and diffused light simulation exercises. This program is designed for the average woman with no previous experience or background in physical skills training.
This program is a service for elderly or disabled residents who need assistance. The Police officer in charge of this program obtains pertinent information from the resident, which is kept on file in the Police Department and on the ambulance for emergency medical use. After completing the necessary form, the Police Officer periodically checks on these residents and their welfare, and to see if there is anything we can do to assist them.
