Enforcement Activities

Vernon Rocks, in collaboration with one of our primary partners, the Vernon Police Department, implements enforcement activities such as compliance checks that ensure that Vernon liquor stores are not selling to minors and that older adults are not purchasing alcohol for minors. Additionally, the Vernon Police Department work with Vernon ROCKS members to prevent and stop underage parties and in-school drug use, and continues to monitor for individuals driving under the influence in Vernon.

DEA Drug Take-Back Events: Vernon ROCKS, in partnership with the Vernon Police Department and Walgreens Pharmacy, participate in the semi-annual National DEA Take Back Days that happen every October and April. We have hosted this event three times over the past two years in the parking lot of Walgreens located at 188 Union Street in Vernon-Rockville. The goal of this event is to prevent prescription pill abuse and theft by ridding homes of potentially dangerous, expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs. Together over the three events, we collected about 350 POUNDS of prescription medications and turned them over to the DEA for proper disposal!
